Curriculum Development 2007

Written on October 20, 2011 at 12:21 AM

In order to make our educational materials more interesting to our students, our teachers work with articles published in newspapers and magazines in Guatemala and Latin America as a part of their curriculum development. These articles focus on local, national and world issues. This is a tremendous benefit for our students because they learn about the social and cultural issues of Guatemala and Latin American while accomplishing linguistics objectives.

All the educational material produced by our staff is based on Bloom’s Taxonomy
