SPAN-T 530: Spanish Through Cultural Expressions

Spanish Through Cultural Expressions is a course specifically designed for current teachers of K-12 Spanish courses. Its goal is to explore the cultural expressions of the Hispanic world (narrative, art/visual media, music/verse, and film) with two main purposes: to increase student understanding of the interplay and development of these forms of expression in the Hispanic world, and to develop skills and strategies for the use of authentic cultural materials in the classroom.

This course is structured around four content units, each focused on a type of cultural expression. In each unit, students will engage with primary cultural materials of that type, as well as ancillary primary materials and secondary sources. Each unit will include assessment of comprehension, video discussions on Canvas, an analysis activity, and the development of a module or lesson that the student could implement in their own classroom.

Please review the syllabus for full course information.

This is a Full Semester course. Participants may register for one Full Semester course OR one course each in Fall I and Fall II.
