Product Description
24 teachers have purchased this product, which was updated August 20, 2018.. The front pages of the newspapers are often focused on the massive amounts of migrants / refugees from Central America which were streaming across the southern border of the USA. Many of the migrants are unaccompanied children. This issue sparks significant controversy, and much debate as to why these children are coming here, and what we should do about it.

This power point provides an overview as to causes of out-migration from one country in particular: Guatemala. If you don’t know much about Guatemala, I think you’ll be shocked by a lot of the information. To tease you a bit, both President Clinton and President Obama apologized to the Guatemalan people for 2 different reasons, and 20 years separate.

Included you'll find a 77 slide power point and 5 sides of corresponding notes. It also includes links to 2 videos which cover CIA involvement in overthrowing the democratically elected government of Guatemala in 1954.

Note: I have a shorter version of this Guatemalan power point on my TpT site: 21st Century Global Studies.

I would recommend that before you access this power point that you access my Central America migration crisis power point, which will give you and your students an overview of the crisis. That power point consists of a variety of maps, graphs, charts and lists which will involve students in understanding the crisis, and to ask lots of questions.

Additionally, if you found the Guatemala power point valuable, and want to know more, I’d suggest you access the products on Honduras, El Salvador and Costa Rica that are in my store.
