Congratulations to Dual Language and English Learner Department (DLE) student Lucia Garcia!

Lucia Garcia

Lucia's culminating Dual Language Certificate action-research project "Beyond Language: Empowering Students and Educators in a Dual Language Classroom Through Culturally Significant Activities" was awarded the Provost's Award at the 2014 Student Research Symposium at SDSU. Lucia's study explored the impact of a Native Spanish speaking teacher infusing her own social cultural identity into her teacher role identity to create meaningful and culturally relevant language learning activities for students in a 90/10 dual language setting. Lucia's recognition is one of only twelve Provost's awards across all categories and includes a certificate and monetary award. Lucia's study was constructed as part of her work in the Dual Language Certificate program in the DLE Department under the guidance of Dr. Marva Cappello, a professor for the Dual Language and English Language Development Certificate program.
