Description

As part of the course for Spanish Heritage students (MLSP 290), students read a novel entitled A Través de Cien Montañas (Across a Hundred Mountains), which depicts the hardships adolescents face as a result of the separation of their families due to poverty and the lack of opportunity in countries like Mexico, where most of the novel takes place. Students in this class have the opportunity to reflect and analyze the story through their own creative lens, and as a final assignment they develop a creative project that demonstrates an issue, theme or scene that impacted them the most.

This is a joint presentation involving several students discussing their personal connection to a theme or an aspect of the novel. Topics covered involve family dynamics, gender, immigration issues, religion, and Latino cultural values.
