    Course Highlights

    This course features a detailed assignments section.

    Each student participates in three group projects (PDF), delivered orally with web presentations supplemented by written reports. These projects (PDF) involve online research about the history, literature, art and music of Spanish-speaking countries, volunteer work in the community with Hispanic children and adults, and the creation of videotaped interviews. We watch current films from Spain and Latin America, and read short stories and plays. There are also group simulation activities (based on ethical or hypothetical scenarios) and visits from Spanish-speaking MIT faculty and students.
