Struggle for Independence: Mexico's Rebellion Against Spain. Social Studies. A Teacher's Guide for Grades 1-9.
Crespin, Emil; Rodriguez, Robert
This book is the first in a series of historical resource guides developed by the Far West Center of Curriculum Adaptation Network for Bilingual Bicultural Education (CANBBE). This unit, for grades 1-9, focuses on Mexico's revolt against Spanish rule and highlights famous persons and events of the period. The materials can serve as a reference on Mexican historical events and patriotic commemorations in order that the teacher may have some information readily available for classroom use. Historical facts as well as activities for use in the classroom, in the school, or for community presentation are included. This book can be used as a general supplement to the Social Studies Strand of the Spanish Curricula Development Center materials. The unit is arranged in nine sections according to either famous persons or events. Each section includes presentation of facts, a list of reasons for remembering the day, vocabulary, ways for teachers to highlight the facts, ideas for discussion, and activities. Suggestions for classroom activities include role playing, bulletin boards, reports, and time lines. The listing of commemoration dates is sequenced to allow teachers to plan the school calendar accordingly. (Author/JR)
