New Course Proposal
The Foreign Language/ESL/Reading Department proposes a new course, SP65:
Culture and Civilization of Latin America. This course had previously been approved as
a Foreign Language Special Topics Course, FL45A.
Course Description:
Overview of culture and civilization of Latin America through examination of
literature, history and art forms, including film, music and mass media given in Spanish.
Prerequisite:
SP 52 or fulfillment of equivalent high school placement requirement.
Rationale for Course:
*This course would complete the parallel track already in place with modern Spanish
(Peninsular) Literature (SP62) and Spanish Culture and Civilization (SP61). This new
course would complement the already approved Modern Latin American Literature (SP
66).
*This course would give student of Spanish the opportunity to put to use their knowledge
of the target language at an advanced level in reading and writing about authentic,
primary source materials dealing with various aspects of culture and civilization of
Spanish American countries. This course will be taught entirely in the target language.

DATE:

I support your proposal for a new course offering, SP 65: Culture and
Civilization of Latin America. Considering the popularity of Spanish course
offerings, this would be a welcome addition to the upper level courses already in
place. I also applaud your intent to teach the course entirely in Spanish.

ORIGINATING CAMPUS: (xx ) Ammerman
( ) Eastern
( ) Western
To meet the ideals of Suffolk County Community College, new
courses/curriculum should, if appropriate, consider issues arising from
elements of cultural diversity. Among the areas in which this can be realized
are: textbook choice, selection of library and audio-visual materials, and
teaching methodology.
Guidelines:
Not every item in this format is applicable to every course proposal.
Responses of NOT APPLICABLE are acceptable in such instances. The
Counseling Office and Library of each campus have materials that can help
locate answers about transferability (II d.) and other colleges that offer
similar courses (VI a. and b.).
Information about offerings at other colleges does not require complete
listings where such offerings are numerous. A summary or sampling will
suffice.

RELATIONSHIP TO SUNY GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS*
A. If this is a general education course, how does it incorporate the
SUNY infused competencies of critical thinking and information
management?
*The ten SUNY knowledge and skill areas are: Mathematics, Natural
Sciences, Social Sciences, American History, Western Civilization, Other
World Civilizations, Humanities, The Arts, Foreign Language, Basic
Communication.
Through the various reading selections for this course students will be
able to analyze, discuss and evaluate historic events, artistic movements
political and social issues. They will be able to develop and defend their
own ideas and opinions with supporting evidence.
An equally important area for critical thinking lies in the role that
language has in a given culture. Because language is the primary vehicle
for expressing cultural perspectives and for participating in social
practices, the study of a language provides opportunities for students to
develop insights in a culture that are available in no other way. Thus,
this culture course, taught in the target language, serves to help students
not only to expect differences but to analyze observed differences and put
them into perspective within the framework of the target culture.
As far as information management is concerned, students will be able to
use research techniques to find information pertinent to required
assignments. Using Internet sites, students can carry out research
directly from sites originating in countries of the target language culture.
B. If this is a general education course, what are its assessment
measures, i.e. instruments to measure the attainment of student
learning outcomes?
Short answer and essay exams. Critical analyses and/or term papers.
V.
RELATIONSHIP TO OTHER COLLEGES AND/OR CAREER GOALS
A. List other colleges that offer this course.

YEAR: TBA
1. OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE:
At the end of this course students will be able to:
 understand more clearly the differences in the diversity of the unique
cultures of Spanish American countries.
 understand more clearly the unifying elements of Spanish American
cultures
 examine their own culture in a different light
 strengthen their knowledge of the target language
 be able to understand more empathetically the Hispanic groups living
in the local community as well as in other areas of the United States.
2. PROCEDURES FOR ACCOMPLISHING THESE OBJECTIVES:
The course materials are extremely diverse given the fascinating but evolving
nature of cultural studies. In addition to actually listening to, seeing, and
touching actual artifacts of culture, we will read about their evolution and
significance.
The reading component of the course consists of excerpts from various readers
on Latin American culture, articles about different forms of expression, several
short stories, poems and essays, online articles from journals and newspapers
from the countries we will study. This course is organized principally into
several sections which cover the different countries in each geographical region.
The first three weeks of class will be dedicated to the Hispanic culture in the
USA.
Concepts which unite our studies in the diverse Latin American countries
include ideas about national identity (how it is formed, who feels it most, how
does it evolve, does it include everyone (factors of gender, race, class), syncretic
cultural expressions (for instance, what happens when the Indigenous meet
Hispanic); the role of popular vs. high culture (how do Tango music and soccer
contribute to Argentinianness? Are spoken, sung or sketched expressions any
less valuable than printed materials in the Andes?), and of course, we will reflect
upon our own position as external and alien observers to these phenomena.
Genres studied will include music, film, novel, painting, as well as some other
hard to explain artifacts.
3. STUDENT REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPLETION OF THE COURSE:
Students are required:
 to come to class prepared with all assigned homework completed
 to participate in all class activities
 to pass all evaluations
