SP 339 - The Critical Pedagogue: Teaching Spanish as a Cross-Cultural Transformative Process (4 Cr.)

(Formerly SP 240) (LER Understanding Diverse Perspectives) (GCR RPP)
In this course class discussions and readings will revolve around questions such as: Does the neutral/objective teacher exist? Is what one chooses to include or leave out of the curriculum a political act? Students will analyze bias, stereotypes and generalizations in textbook and pedagogical material. They will read in Spanish the book “I, Rigoberta Menchu, An Indian Woman in Guatemala” and discuss the realities of social and political struggle and their connection to class materials. Students will also examine Spanish and Mexican films, which shed critical views of educational systems and compare them to their own. Finally, students will observe teachers of Spanish, create their own lesson plans, exams and class activities, and practice different methods for teaching reading, writing, listening, speaking and cultural material. Prerequisite: SP 235  or placement. Variable semesters. Miranda-Aldaco, Moreno-López.
