2021 TFLTA Workshop: Spanish - Incorporando la cultura Afro Latina en el aula de clase
Presenter: Maureen Aguilar; Incorporating Afro Latinidad in the Spanish classroom allows our students to discover how Negritud is deeply rooted into Hispanic Heritage. Afro Latinidad is a beautiful example of the rich culture that can be found in Spanish speaking countries. Talking about Afro Latinidad gives our students a chance to engage in conversations and research about food, music, gender roles, social issues, traditions, dance and all the relevant topics that students in high school are talking and asking about.
But how can educators initiate culturally rich conversations in the classroom through the lense of Afro Latinidad, equidad, and inclusividad? Together we will draft a culturally rich and grammar focused activity that can be put to use in your next lesson plan. This activity can be
adapted to novice and even AP/IB Spanish levels. By the end of this workshop
you will feel empowered and equipped to start conversations and activities
focused in Afro Latinx culture in the Spanish classroom. Language focus: Spanish Levels: Secondary
