AP Spanish end of the unit 3 work
During unit 3, Influences of Beauty and Art, students studied and analyzed different sources and different points of view on whether graffiti is a form of art or vandalism. Students were asked for homework to think about their favorite Spanish word and to create graffiti. Students had to present in Spanish to the class in a circle the meaning of the graffiti and why they chose that word. It was interesting to find how the words were connected with past sensory experiences; for example, students described smells, sounds, feelings, etc
Span NHS Bulletin Board Updates
A COUNTRY'S CULTURE: FOOD
By: Hannah Britt, Stephanie Mauro, Abby Manthous , and Victoria Gage
An important aspect of any country's culture is the food. When exploring the three biggest meal categories (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), we learn about Spain's traditional dishes.
For breakfast, many start their day off with freshly squeezed orange juice that can be found at many cafes. Coffee with milk, usually containing espresso, is very popular also. Many will either grab a churro or muffin to finish off their meal.
After that is lunch, which varies in dishes. Four popular dishes are croquettes eaten with tapas, paella (rice, vegetables, and different types of fish or chicken), meatballs, and pisto manchego, which is fairly healthy.
Lastly is dinner. There is gazpacho, a cold vegetable soup, fideuá which is similar to paella but made with cakes/pasta, iberian ham, and garlic prawns.
DIA DE LOS MUERTOS:
by: Theodore Lampos
This week the Spanish Honor Society created their bulletin board about Día de los Muertos, (the Hispanic/Latinx celebration of those who have passed) throughout different Spanish speaking countries. Día de los Muertos is a holiday to honor those who have passed and remember their lives. It is a festival as an alternative way of remembering loved ones they have lost. Instead of mourning their death, citizens of these countries celebrate the life of those who have passed with food, music and candlelit vigils to honor their loved ones. They focused on Spain, Mexico, Ecuador and Honduras and the similarities and differences in how they celebrate the holiday.
Each country celebrates the holiday in their own unique way, yet some traditions remain consistent. For example, all of these countries celebrate somewhere in the frame of October 31st to November 2nd. They all also celebrate with vigils to honor those who have passed on and to remember their life and have food and music to celebrate their lives. There are differences in each country's celebrations however. For example, in Spain they honor their loved ones with wine and pan de animas (spirit bread) at their graves. In Mexico and Ecuador however, they celebrate with colada moradas (a traditional fruit drink) and guaguas (bread babies). Overall, the celebrations across the different Spanish speaking countries vary greatly, yet there are some traditions that endure no matter the location of celebration.
