Curricula - Indigenous Cultures of the Americas

This page contains curriculum units developed by teachers who participated in the Indigenous Cultures of the Americas summer institutes for teachers in 2012 and 2013. The first curriculum unit in each section was developed by Elise Weisenbach (Branford High School Spanish teacher), who served both years as the Summer Institute Teacher Advisor. The summer institutes were made possible by generous support from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations and a Title VI National Resource Center Grant from the United States Department of Education. They were jointly sponsored and carried out by Programs in International Educational Resources (PIER) at the MacMillan Center, the Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies (CLAIS) and the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History.
