Teaching About Latin America.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
This publication is offered as a resource guide for teachers rather than as a prescriptive syllabus. No course of study is delineated and no course objectives are spelled out. Instead there are illustrative examples for applying discovery techniques to the study of Latin America, suggestions of various themes useful in organizing a course of study for secondary grades and selected listings of resource materials. The booklet is divided into the following sections: The Present State of Latin American Studies; Inquiry and Latin American Studies; The Latin American Studies Course-Alternative Structures; Introducing Latin America to the Less Academically Oriented; Developing Teacher- and Student-Produced Materials; Simulation and Latin American Studies; Studies in Comparative Institutions-Slavery in the United States and Latin America; and, Latin America for the General Social Studies Teacher-An Introductory Bibliographic Essay.
