Hispanic Cultural Theme Studies for Elementary Schools.
Arata, Luis O.
These materials provide narratives about selected topics of cultural importance in the Hispanic world from the pre-Columbian past until after the Spanish conquest. The materials are designed for enrichment of current programs, and can be used in a variety of areas by elementary school teachers. The topics are treated in a story format so that history appears like an adventure with a certain logic that the students can uncover and form opinions about. Each narrative is followed by suggestions for further exploration and a bibliography to help teachers to obtain additional materials for more in-depth coverage. Sixteen theme studies are included: (1) Babel Bookstore; (2) At Sea; (3) The Desert; (4) The Lost Treasure of El Dorado; (5) Real Treasures; (6) Geographies; (7) Maps; (8) Lost Continents; (9) Numbers; (10) Quetzal; (11) The Maya; (12) Popol Vuh; (13) Columbus; (14) Hernan Cortes; (15) The Way to Quezaltenango; and (16) Waiting for Viracocha.
