December 11, 2018, 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM @ Gadsden Hotel Lobby
Cochise College would like to invite the public to a Screening Event titled, "Reliving the Grand Theatre Documentary: Part 1" on Tuesday, December 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the Gadsden Hotel Lobby in Douglas, AZ. How can storytelling become a central part of second language acquisition and video production? Two college instructors at Cochise College brought their students together to tackle an ambitious community project this semester that highlights the oral histories of the Grand Theatre in Douglas, AZ.
For ESL instructor Margarita Ramirez-Loya, storytelling has been part of her curriculum development since 2011 when her students began interviewing elders of the community and retelling their stories as a way to practice English. These experiences have turned into digital stories presented to the community every end of the semester and her research has been published in Europe.
