An Inclusive Examination of the Mexican-American War. Fulbright Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 1999 (Mexico).
The Mexican American War is frequently a footnote in the study of U.S. expansion. The conflict is often portrayed solely from the U.S. perspective. This paper suggests that supplementing a U.S. history curriculum with an inclusive look at this conflict teaches students about the complexity of the relationship between the United States and Mexico. The paper argues for a thorough study of the war and offers teachers some resources for shaping a unit on the conflict. Noting that it can be challenging for teachers to locate enough materials to create a unit, the paper provides an annotated bibliography to introduce the diverse resources that exist on the topic; in the bibliography are curriculum units, background texts, images and texts, and resources on contemporary portrayals/Mexican-U.S. relations. (Contains 15 resources.) (BT)
