This is an online course designed for teachers who wish to continue to develop their cultural and/or language skills through a popular children's film that is available in English and in Spanish. The film selected, Encanto, will be familiar to children and teachers of all ages. Emphasis will be on cross-cultural appreciation and diversity in the arts, the significance of symbolism, reflections and discussions raising cultural awareness, geography, regional differences, science (including technology and innovation), gender differences, cuisine, clothing, vocabulary building, improving conversational and writing skills, comprehension, and film analysis. Central concepts in diversity, equity, and inclusion work, such as “asset based education” (ie one’s gift or super power vs. “deficit based education” or inability to focus/ADHD) will be highlighted throughout. Emphasis will also be on music, such as learning about Colombian culture and Spanish words through songs by artists such as Carlos Vives, Shakira, and Juanes, and famous painters like Fernando Botero. Group work will be in the form of discussion boards and lesson plan development. This course is conducted in English, with a Spanish option for Spanish teachers with submission of writing, readings, discussions, activities, and projects in Spanish. Taught by Dr. Lynn McGovern.
