Graduate & PD Courses
Gender Reading of Latin American Literature for Teachers 5-12 (In Spanish)
This course will introduce students/teachers to literature, film, popular culture, and critical theory connected to issues of gender, sexual identity and diversity. Through close reading, class discussion, and critical lessons, students/teachers will be encouraged to thin and analyze their perspectives on gender and sexuality beyond those promoted by the dominant culture in the society. We will question the historical constructions of gender categories and the relation among them. Focusing on theoretical readings, research, popular culture and literature (in this case, Latin American Literature), we will interrogate the very roots of the terms of gender (masculine, woman, feminine, etc.) and sexual identity (heterosexual, transsexual, homosexual, etc.). In this class students/teachers will question the “common sense” ideas and what it is considered “natural” for gender and sexual identity. We also explore how technology, science and even the market have intervened with the construction of gender roles, rights and categories. This course is conducted in Spanish by a native speaker, Dr. Wanda Ocasio-Rivera.
Educators Academy instructors are all native speakers with high credentials and excellent standards. Although our courses are usually organized on an eight week schedule, teachers may obtain an automatic extension catered to their needs within one year limit.
