Mexico, Past and Present. Curriculum Projects. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 2002 (Mexico).
This curriculum unit focuses on the Aztec settlement in Mesoamerica comparing it with present-day Mexico. The unit is oriented to teach basic communicative skills to beginning English language learners in small groups of approximately five students. It helps Mexican Spanish-speaking students embrace their own culture and build on their prior knowledge. The unit employs a variety of teaching methods to access the students' different learning modalities. It also includes many hands-on activities to benefit students of varying language proficiency levels and provides suggestions for materials. The unit takes about 15 days to complete and offers a day-by-day detailed procedure for classroom implementation. It contains a sample Aztec legend of Mexico, "The Eagle and the Snake," and lists additional resources and activities, as well as skills to be used by students in this unit. (BT)
