OKDIARIO has had access to the Multidisciplinary Didactic Guide for ESO and Baccalaureate Students prepared by the Subdirectorate General for Innovation and Training Programs of the Ministry of Education that the Executive of Ayuso has provided to the educational centers of the region together with the documentary Spain: the first globalization.

This is a documentary directed by Jose Luis Lopez Linares in which “new readings on the historical period that began in the reign of the Catholic Monarchs, the discovery of America and the subsequent evolution of the history of Spain, dismantling the black legend” are offered.

Along with the documentary itself, the department led by Enrique Ossorio will deliver this guide to schools, which “is intended to be useful material for teachers to analyze and reflect with students on what these three centuries of exchange have meant, not only from the point of view of history, but integrating everything that this expansion of Spain through the sea meant at a global level».

The manual raises topics for reflection for teachers to carry out with students, based on the concepts addressed in the documentary, such as, for example, religion.

On this point, he points out that «the Christian religion was very present in the cultural evolution of the new Hispanic territories in the Americas» and underlines that «in a evangelization processthe inhabitants of the new possessions were integrated into the viceroyalties, with the same rights and duties as the rest of the subjects of the Hispanic Monarchy».

“The documentary Spain, the first globalization allows to analyze a period of the history of Spain from a multidisciplinary vision. In order to reach Asia, it was necessary to integrate knowledge from various disciplines. The exchange it involved allowed access to scientific innovations, new urban, economic and cultural structures that surpassed the limits of what was known in Western Europe. These influences have been forging our character and historical evolution », he points out.

The guide’s educational objectives are to analyze the history of Spain dismantling the black legend, discuss how the discovery of America and trade travel with the East influenced the configuration of the world today, investigate the scientific advances that were necessary to carry out the voyages across the sea, reflect on the mutual influences that occurred between the peninsula and the territories discovered by Spain from a global perspective and identify the sociopolitical framework that existed in the fifteenth century and how it evolved in later centuries.
