Pura Vida Lessons for Teaching Latin America – (TCSS, Fort Worth Oct 2015)These lessons were developed as part of a grant written by Dr. Jo Beth Oestreich at Texas State University and funded by the National Geographic Education Foundation. They are designed to be used in 6th grade World Cultures courses in Texas and are aligned with the TEKS, CCRS, and ELPS. There are lessons and resources for Political Geography, Economic Geography, Physical Geography and Social Geography. Each unit contains a lesson plan and a case study. All materials were produced by myself, unless otherwise noted in the lesson.
The Texas Alliance for Geographic Education produced a number of resources for teaching Southeast Asia as part of a grant funded by the National Geographic Education Foundation. In addition to the lesson plans and case studies which I created, there are video lectures from professors at Texas State University. All of the resources can be found on the Resources: Texas Alliance for Geographic Education page.
