The Indigenous Cultures and the Influences of Spain and Mexico. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad, 1999 (Mexico).
Studies of U.S. history in middle school usually focus on the British point of view of the growth and development of the United States. This curriculum project aims to foster a bi-national perspective to compare and contrast issues reflecting the influences of Spain and Mexico on the indigenous cultures of both countries, with a specific focus on the Luiseno tribe in San Diego (California) and the Tarahumara Indians of Copper Canyon in Mexico. The project outlines four learning objectives for students, suggests strategies to help students achieve these objectives, and provides discussion questions to assist students in considering the material studied. A list of materials used in the project is also provided. (BT)
