Webinar: Global Competence Strategies for World Language Classrooms

<p>This collection was created for the webinar with SCLDA on May 8th, 2019. It is based on three collections created by Marcela Velikovsky (Bullis School) and Vicky Masson (Christ Episcopal School) as part of the  <strong>2018 Smithsonian Virtual Teacher Curricula Creation Opportunity</strong> with the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access (SCLDA), and thanks to the Smithsonian Latino Center's Latino Initiative Pool funds.</p> <p>These collections highlight Latin American works of art, that show how culture shapes the way we see the world, others, and ourselves, and they also raise awareness about Latinx diversity. They explore <strong>“People, Place, and Time: How Art Reflects Culture.”</strong> Products, practices and perspectives displayed in Latinx art, show how our place and history (past) influence who we are (present) and who we want to be (future) in geographical, social, economic, and/or historical contexts. </p> <ul><li><a href="https://learninglab.si.edu/collections/people-place-and-time-how-art-reflects-culture-night-of-the-dead-by-alan-crane/9cDvmPDbwB2LgDbw#r">People, Place and Time: How Art Reflects Culture - Night of the Dead by Alan Crane</a></li><li><a href="https://learninglab.si.edu/collections/people-place-and-time-how-art-reflects-culture-collection-3-caja-de-memoria-viva-ii-constancia/x1U3nWEf7Cw3DJuh#r">People, Place and Time: How Art Reflects Culture - Caja de Memoria Viva II: Constancia Colón de Clemente by Adrián Román (“Viajero”)</a></li><li><a href="https://learninglab.si.edu/collections/people-place-and-time-how-art-reflects-culture-mndez-v-westminster-1947-national-postal-museum/MPN1hin42XbKePMn#r">People, Place and Time: How Art Reflects Culture - <em>Méndez v.

Selfies Back Then... and Now - Selfies de Antes y de Ahora

Selfies Back Then... and Now - Selfies de Antes y de Ahora<br /> <br /> This collection was produced by Marcela Velikovsky and Whitfield Mastin from Bullis School, and Vicky Masson from Sheridan School, in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery’s 2016 Learning to Look Summer Teacher Institute.<br /> TAGS: #NPGteach, portrait, learning to look, National Portrait Galleryduring the Summer Institute "Learning to Look" at the National Portrait Gallery in 2016.<br /> <br /> This project is based on the work by José Gómez Sicre. We want to guide students in their understanding of the work, José Gómez Sicre and José Clemente Orozco, by utilizing reading portrait strategies and an extension exercise in which they create their own selfie. Students are exposed to many tools that allow them to access and evaluate information and a diverse perspective that are available through art and the cultures it represents. This project integrates a number of techniques that allow students to gain a more in depth understanding of the Latin American culture.<br />

People, Place, and Time: How Art Reflects Culture - Collection 1 - Night of the Dead by Alan Crane

<p>In this collection, designed for a Spanish-speaking classroom, students will explore how art reflects culture when analyzing “Night of the Dead,” a lithograph by Alan Crane in the National Museum of American History. The collection includes a <a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1MsgQWrXynFu5FIYvqfEvS2voLxbjLmJuTFk5RraGOEo/edit">teacher's guide in English</a> and suggested authentic resources both in Spanish and English to be adapted by teachers of multiple disciplines. </p> <p>Students will investigate how the Day of the Dead is celebrated by Latin Americans and compare it to their own celebrations. Next, students  will create an interactive presentation using Flipgrid and write a monologue to reflect their learning from the point of view of one of the persons in the artwork. </p> <p>This collection is one of three that explore “People, Place, and Time: How Art Reflects Culture.” Products, practices and perspectives displayed in Latinx art, show how our place and history (past) influence who we are (present) and who we want to be (future) in geographical, social, economic, and/or historical contexts. In the three collections, Latin American works of art illustrate how culture shapes the way we see the world, others, and ourselves, and they also raise awareness about Latinx diversity.</p> <p>The three collections were created by Marcela Velikovsky (Bullis School) and Vicky Masson (Christ Episcopal School) as part of the  <strong>2018 Smithsonian Virtual Teacher Curricula Creation Opportunity</strong> with the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access (SCLDA), and thanks to the Smithsonian Latino Center's Latino Initiative Pool funds. The three collections highlight Latino history, art, and culture, and use Harvard Project Zero Thinking Routines and Global Thinking Routines strategies. </p> <p>The Smithsonian Learning Lab collections provide an opportunity to invigorate the World Language (Foreign Language) curriculum as it allows to effectively integrate online museum resources (authentic resources) towards a 21st century curriculum. They facilitate student-centered activities within a variety of themes such as, family and communities, personal and public identities, social values and customs, holidays and celebrations, immigration, ethnic groups, Hispanic Heritage,  image and stereotypes, inequality and discrimination, global issues, religious practices, etc. They also provide the opportunity to analyze art, read portraiture, and investigate art media.</p> <p>These collections also consider ACTFL standards (Communication, Connections, Comparisons, Communities and Culture), Asia Society Global Competence skills, the Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals), Teaching Tolerance Social Justice standards, the Framework for Developing Global and Cultural Competencies to Advance Equity, Excellence and Economic competitiveness, and Participate Global Competencies.</p> <p>#National Portrait Gallery #Spanish #Global awareness #Empathy #Global connections #Global-mindedness #Curiosity #Cross-cultural skills #Day of the Dead #Worldview #LatinoHAC</p> <p><br /></p>
