Lesson Plans - developed by teachers, these discrete, multidisciplinary lesson plans explore the Americas through Art, Math, Language Studies, Science, Social Studies and Spanish
Thematic Guides - in-depth examinations of topics that have ongoing relevance to the Americas
Vamos a Leer Educator's Guides - each guide consists of lesson plans and activities that accompany a specific book featured in the LAII's monthly book group.
