of American States Project
this project, students choose a country that is a member of
the Organization of American
States to research. They then “create” an NGO
to address an important issue in that country. The project
finishes when students make
a pitch for funding to the rest of the class using a PowerPoint presentation.
Center wants to make it easier for teachers to bring Latin
American issues to the classroom. We would like to create an
archive of lesson plans that touch on Latin American topics.
If you are currently teaching a unit on Latin America and are
interested in having it posted on our web site, please contact:
