Larson, Pamela A.
This curriculum unit, designed for a Spanish I class at the high school level, explores the Olmec, an ancient civilization in Mexico. The unit aims for students to develop an appreciation for early civilizations and their importance to the present day. It gives seven objectives for students to work toward and lists detailed strategies for accomplishing these objectives. The lesson plans in the unit present a 7-day schedule for students to deepen their knowledge of the Olmec. Included in the unit are questions for the teacher to evaluate the students' knowledge, a sample "word web," guidelines for mounting an attention-getting bulletin board that focuses on the Olmec, and an examination. Contains an Internet resource list and a 23-item bibliography. (BT)
