PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this unit, students will develop their understanding of the interplay between humans and the environment, especially as it relates to the extraction of resources and the demands of local and global economies. Students will examine this interplay through the lens of Latin America and will study Central and South American geography and history (connections to Mexican and United States history will be emphasized from the previous unit). Students will study immigration thinking through the immigration between Latin America and the U.S. Students will conduct a more detailed study of the resources of the region and examine how point of view influences resource use. Students will study the Amazon Rainforest, for example, from the perspectives of the Brazilian government, a poor cattle farmer, an indigenous tribal leader, and a scientist in the United States. Students will be able explain the interlocking aspects of an
ecosystem and how human activity impacts the environment. Students will practice research and persuasive expository writing by writing a letter on an issue of environmental concern to a lawmaker or leader.
