Thank you very much for this resource. It saved me a lot of time and was meaningful for my students.

This film study can be used with any unit about Bolivia. It includes 2 weeks worth of activities for your class and probably more! Use it as a part of an indigenous culture unit, an extension after teaching the novel, "El Ekeko", as a piece of a mining unit with a novel such as "Todo lo que brilla" or on its own in a unit of Human Rights. This film study hits multiple AP Themes! See our blog post about this film here with freebie activities to use. This is way beyond a film guide. It is a unit planned with backward design and therefore includes Essential Questions, Can Do Statements and assessments which include those which are useful on proficiency exams such as a cultural comparison and simulated conversation. 95 pages of materials are included!
