Course Description

Winter 2021, SPAN 295A-01: Special Topics in Conversation.  Vivir en comunidad/La migración en las Américas (3). Prerequisites: SPAN 162, 164, or equivalent. Students will meet MWF for extensive conversation in order to enhance aural and oral skills and to develop a deeper understanding of migration in the Spanish-speaking/Latinx world, including in Rockbridge County. Class time will be devoted primarily to speaking, in small groups and as a class, while assignments will require application of all language skills. The course textbook and the digital components are designed to facilitate learning Spanish. We review some grammar, but mostly we will be using Spanish to speak about everyday situations, to examine Latina/o/x cultures, and to analyze artistic, political, and journalistic representations of the migration experience. Over the course of the term, students will gain further confidence in speaking Spanish and broaden their understanding of migration in the Americas. This course counts for the LACS minor. (HL) Mayock.
