Join us live! Purchase one pass per screen. Early bird special till 12/1!
Wednesday, December 9 from 1pm-2pm Pacific / 4pm-5pm Eastern
Summary: Itacaré is a small surf and fishing town in Bahia, Brazil. Teacher Jill takes us on a tour of the main street in town as we see evidence of a cultural history that includes Brazilian, Hawaiian, African, Rasta, Portuguese, Israeli and Japanese cultures. How do you define a cultural identity that is so very diverse? How is this idea connected to your own culture?
Expectations and goals:
- Students will engage live with Teacher Jill as she hits several spots on Itacaré’s main street.
- Students will learn about the cultures that make up Itacaré and identify the parts of main street that reflect those cultures.
- Students will reflect on their own culture and the way in which it represents a melting pot of many cultures, just like in Itacaré.
