Course Description:

Exploring the World of Don Quijote: Imagination and Creativity Come Alive!

Come explore the literary and creative genius of Miguel de Cervantes’ renowned masterpiece El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha.  Participants in this course will examine Part One (most often studied in the middle and secondary classroom) of the work paying special attention to Cervantes’ development of Quijote’s character within the historical and social context of the time.  Some of the themes explored - personal identity, literary style, humor, societal values, traditions - will help participants understand why this masterpiece is considered the first modern novel of the time.  Close reading analysis and analytical writing will help the course participants enhance literacy skills. As teachers, participants will gain a better understanding of how to approach the instruction of El Quijote in their own classes at different proficiency levels. Supplemental resources will provide course participants with ideas for their own learning and classroom practice.  Conducted in Spanish with an occasional reading in English.
