This interdisciplinary lesson combines Spanish language, history, art, and cultural studies. Students annotate historical moments contained in an authentic text (Renau’s mural). By the end of the semester, students will have generated a complete timeline of the events studied in class. Students also create their own artwork related to another moment in history and add it to the timeline.
Inspired by real estate television shows like House Hunters International, students use the houses listed on authentic real estate websites to select a house that fits within their budget, space, and style requirements. As students practice house vocabulary, they are also learning about typical housing styles in another country.
Students use Peninsular and Latin American paintings to discuss visual media. The students then take inspiration from these works to create and discuss their own three-painting series.
