Many Mexicos: An Artifact Exhibit on 7 Geographical and Cultural Regions of Mexico. Curriculum Projects. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 2002 (Mexico).
Mountain, Victoria Snow
This project includes an assortment of artifacts designed to inform high school students about the variety of geographical and cultural regions of Mexico. The artifacts, derived from seven different geographical/cultural regions of Mexico, include maps, posters, objects that symbolize the regional culture, and typical regional costumes, music, and folk dance. It recommends a maximum of three to five regions be presented at one time to avoid overwhelming the students. The project can be used in high school Spanish, world or global studies or contemporary issues, or English as a second language classes. The use of cultural artifacts, music, and dance allows students to absorb the information in left and right brain manners (linear and symbolic). The project can be presented in an assembly or in one or more classroom presentations. The unit outline provides presentation information (with key questions and queries) and background notes; addresses Oregon state standards for social studies; cites objectives; lists materials and artifacts to be presented; gives teaching strategies; discusses assessment/evaluation; suggests follow-up activities; and lists additional resources and references.
