This unit addresses two enduring understandings: cultures evolve over time and who we become is dependent on where we live. Students will demonstrate mastery of knowledge and skills through the creation of an illustrated brochure for a summer study abroad program that compares a Spanish-speaking city or region of their choice to New Orleans. The unit addresses all five categories of National Standards in Foreign Language Education (Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities), and features a variety of cooperative and communicative learning strategies.
