Culturas Latinoamericanas ($50 for students) is a webtext for upper-level students of Latin American culture. Every chapter is compiled of three to six assignments pairing primary resources, video clips, news reports, or readings with thought-provoking assignments. This approach to Latin American culture utilizes artifacts to reinforce learning objectives and translate concepts into the real world for learners.
Chapters focusing on early history leverage primary resources and data to help students comprehend key developments in Latin American history. As the webtext progresses to modern topics, rich multimedia is integrated to reinforce central points. Content includes first-hand accounts of immigrants and the challenges they face, news coverage of the appointment of Justice Sotomayor, and one woman’s recipe for corn tortillas.
