K-12 Outreach: Resources for Teaching About the Americas (RETANet)

Resources for Teaching About the Americas (RETANet) is a database of curricular materials developed in 1996 by 54 secondary teachers from public and private schools in 10 states and on 2 Indian reservations. Content spans art, math, language studies, science, social studies, and Spanish. RETANet materials promote creative, interdisciplinary teaching about issues related to Latin America.

While these lesson plans were developed in the 1990s and are therefore somewhat dated regarding how they incorporate technology into the classroom, the cultural context and reflective student activities remain relevant.

Please see below for the list of lesson plans:
