AP SUBTHEME : Citizenship, Family Structures, Age and Class
How are families and communities affected by political oppression?
Recommended pacing: Approximately 3weeks Teachers need to appropriate the number of lessons to the caliber of students in the class so long as they are being given opportunities to meet the objectives of the unit.
Virginia State Foreign Language Standards of Learning for Level 5:
Students watch movie “Cautiva” or “La historia oficial” and explain in writing how government policies affected the main characters.
Students research in articles and on internet to determine how countries (e.g., Argentina, Chile, Uruguay) are responding in the present to atrocities from the past. Write a summary for one country.
Students will work in pairs to create an interview of a grandparent of a “desaparecido” or one of the military officers.
Students choose one of the “desaparecidos” from the website (http://www.desaparecidos.org/arg/victimas/muro2.html) or from the article on Vision that has enough information to give an oral presentation of the background of the person they’ve chosen.
