U.S.-Mexico: Economic Interdependence. A Precollegiate Curriculum Unit: Grades Nine through Twelve.
Stanford Univ., CA. Stanford Program on International and Cross Cultural Education.
This unit, designed for grades 9-12, introduces students to the growing economic relationship between the United States and Mexico. The unit focuses on the nine so-called "twin cities" along the U.S.-Mexican border, where the impact of the two economies on one another is most visible. The three lessons included in the unit introduce important notions about international trade and political economy. The exercises and activities suggested in the lessons are structured to encourage the use of critical thinking skills. The unit also includes teacher background information, student handouts, a bibliography of recommended resources, and a curriculum evaluation form. (DB)
