Comparative Independence Movements: Latin America & the United States


One day workshop on how to use the comparative model to teach the Latin American independence process in the K-16 classroom.

The National Resource Center for Latin American Studies invites you to the third and final K-12 Workshop Series event of the semester. This workshop will compare and contrast the US and Latin American independence movements and will analyze how these aspects ultimately shaped the states that developed. Time will be allocated to discuss linking themes that will facilitate the incorporation of this topic into the classroom and to discuss possible problematic areas.

This event is made possible thanks to a Title VI grant from the US Department of Education. Participants who complete this workshop are eligible for a Certificate of Participation worth 5 development credits.

Lunch and parking will be provided free of charge to all participants.
