La Tierra Mágica: Una exploración cultural de la América Latina

La tierra mágica: Una exploración cultural de la América Latina is a resource guide on Latin American culture, designed to be used in classes of Spanish for U.S. students at the advanced high school or intermediate to advanced college level. The course was developed with three primary goals in mind:
(1) to introduce students to basic information about aspects of history, sociology, and the humanities that influence life in contemporary Latin America;
(2) to help students develop a global perspective on social, political and cultural factors common to peoples throughout the world;
(3) to promote the development of communicative skills in students of Spanish.
