Abstract

With the increase of immigration in the United States, the Spanish speaking population is rapidly growing (Daly, 2018). According to the United States Census Bureau (2015), the Hispanic population of 55 million makes up 17% of the total population and is projected to grow to 119 million by 2060. Approximately 23.5% of the 55 million are elementary and high school students (United States Census Bureau, 2015). With this, there is a strong necessity to address both the needs of Spanish speaking students and preparing non-speaking Spanish students to effectively communicate in the real word.
