The objective of Reading reports is for students to acquire a general position about the compulsory readings. To achieve this, at the beginning of every class we will discuss the text in groups. Moodle will also be used.
The Analysis Workshop’s purpose is to offer students a space to reflect on an experience that they may have in one of the places that they will visit. The analysis has to integrate compulsory readings specified by faculty, as well as documentaries and concepts learned in classes.
The Forum is an activity for students to debate about controversial and current issues. Faculty will present open questions and students will have to argue, through strong arguments and counterarguments using a constructive and rich dialogue.
The Oral Presentation is a collaborative task. Faculty will assign a reading to each group, and students will respond critically to the text. The presentation has to show the outstanding aspects of the text, with the purpose of explaining the main theme of the document.
The Final Project is a summary of the course. The task is to create audiovisual material related to one subject of the course. Videos will be presented on the next-to-last class.
During the course there is an option of replacing one reading report for an activity related to the theme of the text. For more information, please look at the activities plan for each class.
