A four-week summer institute for thirty school teachers on recent archaeological and ethnohistorical research in Mesoamerica to take place in Oaxaca, Mexico.

This four-week summer institute for K-12 school teachers of history, art, and Spanish language will be held in Oaxaca, Mexico and is designed to facilitate the expanded integration of Mesoamerican cultural heritage materials, including new discoveries and the latest research, into curricular units that will appeal to a variety of learners and bring greater multicultural depth and understanding into U.S. classrooms. The aim is to explore how the histories of Mesoamerican peoples might provide useful comparisons for exploring humanities questions in the broader American and the global context. We will address questions such as how peoples move from non-sedentary to more settled societies; what leads to city formation; the emergence of writing and literacy; the development of complex societies, cultural florescence (and decline); how empires are built and what the human consequences are; and, what are the outcomes of cultural encounters and exchange.
