Course in Culture in the classroom: literature, cinema, music and media


A good Spanish teacher has to be able to teach not only the most characteristic aspects of the language, but also the context. Cultural components such as literature, cinema, music and the media affect language and its evolution.

In this course, taught by Antonio Ramos, you will learn the connection between the acquisition of language and culture, literature as a tool to approach the language, and the stimuli that music and cinema can mean in learning.

Do not miss this opportunity to add a basic competence to your profile as a teacher and be fully prepared to teach Spanish to your students.

Objectives

  • Critically assess and analyze the presence of cultural content in the main methodological approaches to language teaching and in the SFL teaching manuals.
  • Understand and explain the relationships between language and culture from cultural creations in the Spanish-speaking world.
  • Apply literary, cinematographic, cultural and media resources to the teaching of SFL.

Competences

  • Possess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and/or application of ideas, often in a research context.
  • The students must know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their ability to solve problems in new or little-known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study.
  • Students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
  • Students must possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.
  • Design and generate proposals for didactic and intercultural intervention, taking into account the needs of the recipients and the contexts of learning and use of the language.
  • Be able to transmit social and cultural values in accordance with multilingual and multicultural news.
  • Be able to assess, select and use written and oral texts, of different genres and textual typology, suitable for the development of linguistic competence and the approach to the socio-cultural context of the Spanish-speaking world.
  • Evaluate both linguistic and sociocultural content in teaching SFL.
  • Manage multilingual learning environments with special attention to the current intercultural situation (migration, relations between countries, etc.) that generates constant situations of multilingual and multicultural communication.
