Viva La Revolucion! "La Revolucion No Ha Terminado." Teaching the Mexican Revolution across the Curriculum. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad, 1999 (Mexico).
This presentation features materials for teaching about the Mexican Revolution: 1910-1940. The presentation is divided into four broad sections. The first section, "Why Teach the Mexican Revolution?" furnishes a rationale for teaching a course about a revolution that took place much closer to home than the Russian or Chinese Revolutions. The second section, "How Can the Mexican Revolution Lend Itself to Cross-Curricular Enrichment?" contains examples of curriculum enhancement using selections from literature, journalism, drama, art, music and dance, Spanish, technology, science, and mathematics. The third section, "Sample Unit with Connections to State and District Standards," outlines a 3-week unit of study that constitutes a major focus for a U.S. history course. The fourth section, "Resources," details historical references, historical fiction, videos (in both English and Spanish), and Internet sites. Attached are three Washington State Essential Learning Standards with performance indicators, components, and benchmarks for grade 10. (Contains 38 references.) (BT)
