Role Play
Teacher will engage class by starting activity wearing a Mexican Sombrero. A teacher lead class discussion will follow. Prompts and questions will be asked, student responses will be encouraged and discussed as to the characteristics of the hat and its historical purpose in Mexican society. Teacher will then introduce and incorporate into discussion historical hats from other countries such as the American Cowboy hat, the Non La Vietnamese hat, the Scotland Deerstalker.
During guided practice, students will have the opportunity to wear hats and role play with each other. Students will be tasked to find both similarities and differences in the different countries traditional headdresses and communicate the cultural views associated with these findings. For example, Mexican sombreros and Vietnamese non las are both commonly made of straw and used for protection from the sun. However, due to the Vietnamese climate, the non las are much lighter as the absorbent hats also serve for protection against the rain during rainy seasons. Mexican brims are much wider due to country’s desert like climate. Sombreros are incorporated into Mexican holiday celebrations and felt versions are worn by Mariachi Bands while Scotland Deerstalkers where strictly worn for sporting and hunting purposes.
