Organization of American States Project

In this project, students choose a country that is a member of the Organization of American States to research. They then “create” an NGO to address an important issue in that country. The project finishes when students make a pitch for funding to the rest of the class using a PowerPoint presentation.

The Center wants to make it easier for teachers to bring Latin American issues to the classroom. We would like to create an archive of lesson plans that touch on Latin American topics. If you are currently teaching a unit on Latin America and are interested in having it posted on our web site, please contact:
