Constrasting Ways of Life in Latin America; Sample Lessons for the Intermediate Grades.
Gill, Clark C.; Conroy, William B.
This is one of several sequential units developed by the Latin American Curriculum Project. The primary objective was to promote pupil understanding of the social and cultural patterns (ways of living) of Latin America. Appreciation of the diversity in the area is developed by comparing four different families, and contrasting these with life in the United States, to develop insight into their own surroundings. The unit is divided into four parts: the Amazon Jungle, rural Guatemala, Panama City and countryside, and the city in Chile. Each part is organized around a reading selection with illustrations, suggested approaches, and explanations. Related reports are: ED 036 679, SO 000 020, SO 000 021, SO 000 022, SO 000 023. (SBE)
