Course Description

As teachers of Spanish, one of our major goals is to foster an appreciation of the highly diverse society in which we live. By exposing students to the target language through film we help them learn about challenging issues while developing their linguistic proficiency. This course will address six thought-provoking topics: war, the right to die, immigration, gender roles, identity (nations, nationalities, boundaries), and US foreign policy in the Spanish-speaking world. Background information will be gradually introduced and together we will decode many thematic symbols, cultural, social and political references. (Conducted in Spanish by Dr. Lynn McGovern)
