I am creating a student sample for my students in my Spanish class . I will build a presentation step by step to explain to the students how it’s done. They will be placed in groups of four and each group will be assigned an author from Latin America. They will have to research and create a presentation on the author’s life and some of his or her work, including relevant history from the author’s country.
Colombia became independent from Spain in the year 1810.
In 1849, the country's two main political parties, the Liberals and the Conservatives, began a power struggle. This power struggle exists still today. Marquez concentrated on these two political parties in some of his novels.
The Liberals and the Conservatives parties are known for being corrupt and greed overtakes their civil responsibilities.
The Banana Strike was another important date that changed the author’s philosophy on life.
The United Fruit Company was involved with the export bananas and exploiting the Colombian workers. One of the main places where this happened was in Marquez’ home town of Aracataca.
In October 1928, over 32,000 native workers went on strike. They were demands included hygienic working conditions, medical treatment, functioning toilets, and payment in cash rather than inflated company scrip.
