Why is it important for people and cultures to construct narratives about their experience?


Assignment:

This project will focus on drawing parallels between thematic elements of Spanish storytelling with English language counterparts in order to create a common experience within a global culture.


Students in Spanish V will begin by selecting an episode of the Spanish-language podcast Radio Ambulante. Episodes are organized on the podcast website according to theme. The project will begin with listening to episodes via the iPad Podcast app or phone app. After their initial listen, students will be given links to the English translation and asked to critique & revise their original summary.



Objectives:

  • Identify cultural themes related to course content

  • Analyze a Spanish language podcast for both language and literary elements

  • Synthesize multiple resources in the target language

  • Create an original, culminating article for the set
