The unit encourages students to look at media and the portrayal of heroes and consider who is telling the story and why. The goal of this unit is to present grammar (preterite and imperfect tenses) and vocabulary in an authentic context (the news and legends). The unit is infused with real world examples of media including: online media clips, Latin American legends, and other internet news resources. Students are encouraged to pull on previous knowledge and make ties to personal experiences of heroism, media exaggeration, and storytelling.
