Video Summary
In this lesson, students read a letter written by prominent Colombian artists and intellectuals to Spain's prime minister. The letter is in protest of a new Spanish policy requiring Colombians to obtain a visa in order to enter Spain. Role-playing Latin American artists, students formally debate the pros and cons of accepting an invitation to exhibit their work in Spain. After a vote, they prepare to write a letter in response based on majority opinion.
