This Advanced Seminar Topics course centers on the art, film, and culture story and explores how Latin American film reflects key ideas of art and culture in Spanish-speaking countries. This course aims to expand students’ ability to communicate at a greater lexical level in all language skills while delving into advanced topics. Students will be expected to hypothesize, express and defend opinions, and formulate original thoughts in a less structured environment through open discussion and discourse. The course includes analysis of film, culture, art, and literature to aid students in understanding the varied social and cultural experiences of Latin America. This is not an AP prep course; however, students will be exposed to the language and the communities in which it is spoken and should be sufficiently equipped for the AP exam if they choose to take it.
Prerequisite: Permission of current instructor.
