Material Detail



The study module Ofrendas (Offerings) brings to life the custom of remembering and honoring the deceased by celebrating the Day of the Dead. A lively song, a video interview, and an Essay of Images, and related activities embrace the The Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st century. These standards are comprised by the 5 C's: Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. It is through these concepts of connectedness with people and life that Ofrendas teaches students how to honor the past and care for the future. I hope you find these comments and suggestions helpful as you adapt the study module to your own curriculum, teaching style, and students' needs.
