How do agents of change help transform our understanding of global cultures?


Every culture has agents of change: someone who literally becomes a catalyst for the positive development of their culture. In this project, you will identify and analyze a well known Spanish speaking individual who you believe has been an agent of change in his or her culture. Rather than focus on facts and figures about your individual, this project will culminate in a persuasive presentation in which you provide evidence that your person is an agent of change.


Objectives:
  • Develop an effective research question to guide and then continue the inquiry process.
  • Evaluate technology tools to choose the best-fit vehicle for an effective presentation.
  • Present a clear and compelling presentation in the target language.
  • Cite evidence to support a claim that your individual was an agent of change.
  • Analyze a global culture through an individual lens.
