The Educational Outreach Program provides resources about Latin America and the Caribbean for K-12 and post-secondary educators. Collaborative planning with teachers statewide has led to programs suited to the needs of particular classes, schools, and districts.
Our goals are:
1) To provide information, materials, and curriculum on a wide range of topics regarding Latin America and the Caribbean;
2) To offer innovative pedagogical models from and relevant to the study of Latin America and the Caribbean; and
3) To create and increase collaboration amongst and between educators throughout NC and the Duke and UNC academic communities.
To fully understand the resources that the Consortium provides, or to explore our current initiatives and potential ways to collaborate or partner with these initiatives, please visit the Outreach pages at our member institutions The Institute for the Study of the Americas at UNC Chapel Hill and The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Duke University.
At the Institute for the Study of the Americas at UNC Chapel Hill, you will find the Film and Video Collection, with approximately 600 videos and DVD’s available; multimedia presentations; traveling exhibits; the Latino Migration Project; and the Yucatec Maya Program.
At the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Duke University, you will find information on teacher study tours; K-12 curriculum resources and teaching units; culture discovery boxes; College Educators Research Fellowships; and workshops.
