Some Recent Courses SPA 302 (Advanced Spanish for Heritage Speakers) is designed especially for students exposed to Spanish from a young age, either at home or in their communities. The course integrates a service learning component in which students have the opportunity to engage with the local Latino community of Greensboro through service, while enriching their language learning experience. Students learn more about their cultural heritage and develop an appreciation for the cultural and linguistic diversity of different Hispanic communities, both locally and around the world.
SPA 321 (Spanish in a Public School Setting) is a field experience in a public school setting that requires interaction with native speakers of Spanish. The focus of the course is in learning about social and cultural issues from within an academic context with the aim of preparing the students to take an active and efficient role in communicating with the Hispanic population in the public school setting. Students’ communication skills in Spanish receive intensive practice within the school environment. SPA 562 (Growing Up in Latin America: Narratives of Youth in Film and Culture) explores the various representations of youth and coming of age in Latin American Films, short stories, novels and poems. Students are introduced to key theoretical issues and debates concerning youth and politics, immigration, sexuality and the urban space, in addition to essential concepts in film studies.
