The attached curricula are the original works of K-12 educators who participated in the 2016 Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad program in Peru, a month-long, immersive curriculum design workshop for Latin American Studies. Collectively, the units span various grade-levels and subject areas, and many individual units integrate content and themes from multiple academic disciplines. The resulting collection includes curricula and instructional materials addressing diverse aspects of Peruvian life, history, and culture.
UGA’s Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute (LACSI) conducted a two-day orientation for participants prior to their departure for Peru and reviewed drafts of the curricular units after the seminar’s conclusion. While LACSI staff provided feedback and suggestions, all credit for the design of the attached curricula belongs with the seminar participants. We were greatly impressed with the breadth and quality of their work, and we are excited to make it available to other educators through our website.
