In this workshop, high school Spanish teachers--at all levels--will explore compelling primary sources and standards-aligned lesson plans. Participants will create Common Core aligned activities to engage students with a unique and compelling era and its enormous impact.
In 1936, a Nazi- and Fascist-supported military rebellion sought to overthrow the democratically elected government of Spain. Although the United States government did not intervene, 2,800 Americans fought as volunteers against fascism.
This workshop explores questions such as how we decide who is on the right side of an armed conflict, when do we stand up for what we believe in,and what are our obligations in the face of injustice, as individuals and as a nation.
This workshop will be conducted primarily in the Spanish language.
Featuring resources from:
