¡Hola! Welcome to SPN 117 Advanced Spanish Composition, also listed as “Writing intensive”. In this page you will find everything related to our class: syllabus, readings, assignments, bios (about us, as writers!), other resources, and calendar.

We will explore, learn and practice several modes of writing with the aim of producing texts of autobiography in Spanish. Why autobiography? Because we all have a story to tell and especially you: Why are you taking this advanced writing class in Spanish? Why do you speak Spanish? That is a story that deserves to be told! This class is designed to help students sharpen their tools in Spanish with personal expression. How is your family history? How was the journey that brought you here?

Esa es una historia que amerita ser contada. Esta clase está diseñada para ayudar a las estudiantes a agudizar sus herramientas de la lengua desde la expresión personal. ¿Cómo es la historia de tu familia? ¿Cómo fue el viaje que te trajo hasta aquí?

Why do so many women in 19th c. American fiction end up dead? Why are so many men in 19th c. American fiction single or why do they murder their wives to gain that status? Why does no superhero have a wife? The answers to all these questions and more can be found in this class. America, in the 19th c. had a literary Renaissance‰ÛÓa kind of rebirth. Most of the works we are going to study were produced in the short span of 35 years from 1835 to 1850. And not only was there a lot of it. But it was virtually all new. BRAND NEW LITERARY FORMS. In those years, the Western was invented. Detective fiction was invented. The novel itself was reinvented. And poetry in the hands of Walt Whitman went off in a direction it has maintained to this day.

Lessons from the Maghreb: Exploring a diverse Morocco and Tunisia
Read the Fine Print
Some Rights Reserved
Rating

This web site has been created as a "digital learning object" for both learning leaders as well as independent learners. The focus is diversity and religion in the area of North Africa known alternately as the Maghreb. It uses materials developed in the course of participation in a professional development seminar for post-secondary academic leaders during the summer of 2011; the time period of the "Arab Spring" and "Jasmine Revolution" when the citizens of predominantly Islamic countries around the perimeter of the Mediterranean Sea are calling upon their respective leaders for fundamental governmental and social change that is perhaps more democratic in nature than current or previous leadership of those countries. At the same time a resurgence of conservative Islamist leaders want to participate fully in the process of change.

More Than Free: Equity in Open Educational Resources
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

Faculty creation and adoption of OER and ZTC materials can provide students with benefits that extend beyond no-cost or low-cost considerations. These materials can be the foundation of more culturally relevant classroom materialsthanstudents are used to seeing. They can increase the accessibility of instructional materials to students with disabilities. They can be employed to support student-centered learning ideas which upend traditionalnotionshow information flows between teachers and students. Using OER and ZTC materials has the potential to address many of the concerns about inequality that faculty and students alike have about the current educational model. Although OER and ZTC initiatives present opportunities for increased access and equity in the classroom, they do not inherently eliminate interlocking structures of oppression such as systemic racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, and more.
