Perspectives on the Spanish-Speaking Worlds
This course, taught entirely in Spanish with occasional reading in English, is specifically designed for pre-service and in-service teachers of Spanish. It will examine the various geographic and cultural traditions that make up today's Spanish-speaking worlds. In so doing, the course will prepare teachers to develop connections between course content and the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for Foreign Languages and the National Standards for Foreign Language Teaching. The course is interdisciplinary. Topics to be studied in depth include issues of national and cultural identity, social life, and cultural production.
