Thematic Guides

A significant part of the LAII's mission is to produce, enhance, and expand the information about Latin America that is presented in classrooms today. These lesson plans are a large part of this work. They represent extended explorations of themes that have ongoing importance throughout North, Central, and South America. Some of the materials listed here were produced by us in conjunction with our professional development workshops. These lesson plans provide content area materials, primary source documents, literature guides, and hands-on classroom activities.

Upon occasion, we have also had the opportunity to make available lesson plans that were developed directly by New Mexico teachers. Where this has been the case, we have identified the authors. If you are interested in making your materials available to the wider public, we encourage you to contact us to discuss sharing them here.
