Hispanic Cultures through a Media Lens

Bemidji State University

Bemidji State University is creating an open textbook for use in Hispanic Film and Media courses titled Hispanic Cultures Through a Media Lens. Through the development of this textbook, the use of audiovisual materials can be used in Spanish courses and beyond to engage students in foreign language learning and cultural diversity. By designing activities that emphasize critical analysis, students will develop skills in constructive skepticism and approach the content with intrigue and inquisitiveness. This open textbook will be made available in both Spanish and English versions.
