In this unit, students will explore the events and repercussions of the Spanish Civil War. Students will focus on how art illustrates world events and how an artist can be influenced by the world they occupy. Students will also take a look at how propaganda is used during war time and its effect on the population. This unit builds upon students’ knowledge of basic Spanish grammar and Spanish history. With the performance task, students will create a propaganda poster in the target language. The subject of the poster can be any issue students feel strongly about: the environment, politics, school policy, world issues, etc. Students will be assessed on the clarity of their message, grammar, content, and attractiveness of the poster. Poster will include target language command and supporting sentences. In addition to the poster students will take a unit test which covers the imperative and preterite more in depth.
