Burton, Paul C.
The last book in a three-volume series designed to aid teachers in the presentation of historical and cultural background of the Mexican people addresses the period from 1910 to the present. Illustrated text, in both English and Spanish and suitable for supplementary reading, traces the revolutionary period through the activities of Francisco Madero, Emiliano Zapata, Victoriano Huerta, Pancho Villa, Venustiano Carranza, and Alvaro Obregon, and includes information about the 1917 Constitution, women of the revolution, and the corridos. Post World War II Mexico is described in terms of its political, industrial, and agricultural development; art, architecture, and crafts; and education. Bilingual learning activities include a time line, matching exercises, vocabulary exercises, identifications, a history game, a guide to the pronunciation of Spanish and Nahuatl, a glossary, and questions related to each page of text. A bibliography and a list of additional activities are included. The series, designed for grades 4-12, is suitable for the Inquiry Method of teaching and may be reproduced for classroom use. (SB)
