A film that I've used with great success in my IB Spanish I course for the last two years is the film "Women, Media and Rebellion in Oaxaca". If you're looking for opportunities to teach your students about social justice in Latin America in a comprehensible way, look no further.
In this film by Gabriela Martinez Escobar, a professor at the University of Oregon, Gabriela delves into the complexities of the 2006 rebellion in Oaxaca from the point of view of the women who helped to spur the movement. Not only does this film focus on the pivotal women in the uprising, but it also focuses extensively on educational issues and the role that teachers played throughout the movement.
This is a two day lesson plan that helps students to reflect on the power of peaceful protest. Although the resource could be used as a lesson plan, I have also used the worksheet a Criterion A Summative Assessment (for MYP/IB teachers).
