Development of a Curricular Plan and Materials for the Teaching of a College Level Course on the Economic and Social Development of Latin America. Final Report.
Thorn, Richard S.
The first part of this project report, Appendix 1, is the curriculum outline which has been used for the author's course in Economic Development in Latin America. It takes a preponderantly problem-oriented and sectional approach. The main units, following an introductory survey of the Latin American region and its people and institutions, are: Economic and Social Development in Latin America: Background and Theories, and Financing Development. Bibliographies, partially annotated, are keyed to each of the 16 sections of the units. Appendix 2, Bibliography of Economic Development Issues in Latin America, comprises the major portion of the report. The bibliographies contain materials which give both Latin American and foreign viewpoints and approaches to issues affecting Latin American development, the role of the United States in Latin American development, and efforts at multilateral cooperation such as the Alliance for Progress. Many of the over 500 entries are therefore in Spanish. A second phase of the project still in progress is the translation of selected materials written in Spanish in to English for the instruction of non-Spanish reading students. (DJB)
