Educational Resources

This workshop provides Michigan K-14 teachers with context and resources for teaching about water and environmental justice issues—exploring place-based pedagogies to help educators connect water issues across local and global scales.

Resources available to educators:

The workshop introduces attendees to the complex issue of gang violence in Central America, helping them to contextualize it within the region’s history and current events—contextualizing the political, historical, and economic relationship between the US and Central America to explore the concepts of criminality, violence, immigration policy, imperialism, justice systems, and representation of these themes in art. Resources from the K-12 teacher training workshop on March 19, 2018 »

LACS, in collaboration with the University of Michigan Museum of Anthropological Archaeology, University Michigan 3D Lab, and various archaeological projects, has produced 3D models of Latin American artifacts including ancient Peruvian pottery. These freely downloadable models are available on our Sketchfab page; below you will find their accompanying lesson plans.

The LACS Quechua Resource Library is a collection of books, CDs, and DVDs pertaining to Quechua language and culture. We intend this resource to be utilized by instructors and students in courses with contents on Andean culture, history, and society. We are also building a collection of Nahuatl instruction materials. The database of this collection can be found HERE »
