Welcome to Professor Lazo's Contemporary Film and Media Spanish Course! I am here to assist you in your journey as you explore contemporary culture of Spanish speaking countries through film and media. 

Course Description

Spanish I Contemporary Film & Media Part I will embark on an exploration of contemporary culture of Spanish speaking countries through viewing, research, and presenting on contemporary Spanish language films and media. We will start at home in the United States, then visit Spain, Ecuador, Mexico, and end in Puerto Rico. We will reflect on a minimum of three points of contrast with the target culture, as well as search for elements of connection to our home cultures during each lesson’s presentation (one group per lesson) and final project presentations (each student). Our experience will be enriched through additional readings and research. This approach will foster connectivity with communities from around the world to create a greater sense of belonging. Student reflections will be shared during our virtual meeting, each student group lesson presentation, discussion boards, and the final project.
