También la lluvia

I’ve taught this film to my AP Spanish Language class, and I like how it addresses the idea of history repeating itself, treatment of indigenous peoples, and the right to access of natural resources.

Here is what I gathered for showing the film and a few activities I tried.

I used the text of the sermon from the Fray de Montesinos on page 3 of the following document with my students. We worked with 3 primary documents: this excerpt of the sermon, the part of Columbus’ first letter to the King of Spain that is mentioned in the film, and the Ten Commandments in Spanish that I found online.

I also did an activity with part of Diego Rivera’s mural that shows the Conquest. I used an activity from blog by Rebecca M. Bender, PhD. In her blog entry about Picasso, she gave students an image of “Guernica” and had them write phrases from a poem near parts of the painting which, in their opinion, showed similarities and differences between the two. I had students use phrases from the Fray de Montensino’s sermon to tie to images in the mural.
