Summary

This curriculum unit on textiles is intended for middle school students who have previously studied the cultures of modern and ancient Latin America. The unit does not employ Spanish language skills. Its lessons apply to individual, small group, and whole group work, and may take from 30 minutes to three class periods. The guide lists necessary sources, including student readings, ancient and current textile visuals and texts, maps, and videos. The unit contains eight lessons: (1) "Who Are the Maya and Where Are They Today?" (2) "What Does Your Clothing Mean?" (3) "The Geography of Huipiles"; (4) "Nation-States vs. Ethnic/Cultural Groups--Mapping Guatemala and Southeast Mexico"; (5) "The Symbols on a Huipil"; (6) "Creating a Huipil"; (7) "Video: Central America Close Up, Guatemala and El Salvador"; and (8) "Create a Drama Exploring the Clash between Traditions and Modernity." Each lesson outlines goals, procedures, and materials needed. (Contains illustrations of Mayan textiles.) (BT)
