Martinez, Robygue Alejandro
Adjunct Lecturer

Hello everyone, I am Robygue Martinez and I have a Ph.D. in Latin American Cultural Studies from The University of Arizona. I am originally from Mexico and I have been living in the United States for the past ten years. I graduated with a Bachelors's and Master's degree from the University of Texas-Pan American, which is located a few miles away from the border with Mexico. Due to its proximity to Mexico, the main concentrations of students have a Hispanic background. During my stay at UTPA, I had the opportunity to work as a Spanish tutor at the university writing center, and also I had the privilege to teach SPAN 1301 (basic Spanish course) for the Modern Languages department. At The University of Arizona, I have previously taught different undergraduate Spanish courses that are part of the basic Spanish program, Heritage Spanish, and Online Spanish.

Currently Teaching

SPAN 202 – Fourth Semester Spanish

Continuation of Spanish 101, 102, and 201 or by placement exam. As the second semester of the second year Spanish, this course is designed to provide insight into the literature and culture of the Spanish speaking countries. Themes are developed by content-based cultural activities, which provide awareness in the Hispanic culture, and encourage students to formulate opinions on a variety of contemporary issues through authentic readings, discussions and writing. This course reviews the grammatical concepts in a more sophisticated way and analyses more complex syntactic structures considered within a functional whole such as the subjunctive moods, etc. The teaching approach integrates grammar and culture in a functional use through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Classroom activities stress communication across the four skills with a strong aural, oral and written component. Audio, video, and computer materials incorporated.
