Students use photos of people in real life events from the Zapatistas Movement as a springboard to write dialogue between the people in photograph. Students are paired up and create a scene that addresses the issues surrounding the Zapatistas Movement. By allowing your students to explore their knowledge of the Zapatistas Movement through the eyes of someone who was there, they learn empathy and better embody the subject matter. This exercise is a wonderful tool to increase presentation skills, empathy and ensemble in your classroom.
