Do you need to teach about the Spanish Civil War? This film guide is the perfect way to do so! There are so many connections to be made to history in a comprehensible way! It also includes 3 pre AP assessments and a Socratic Seminar! I love to use this film study alone or with Carrie Toth’s novel, “La hija del sastre”. By the end of this film study students will easily produce output about the Spanish Civil War!
