American curriculum materials for grades 6-12 to be included in a
computer database called "Resources for Teaching about the Americas
network" (RETAnet). This information will be available for free to
Internet users worldwide.

We are searching for materials that will help secondary teachers
when forming lesson plans or teaching about the Americas. We are also
interested in secondary curricula that deals with Latin America. To have
your organization's resources included in the database, please fill out
the form below. We appreciate you filling out one form for each
resource. To ease the creation of the data base, please follow the
form as closely as possible. Please don't send us your materials;
however, if there are P.R. brochures of them, feel free to send them.
We are only creating an annotated list: educators will contact you
directly to request your materials.

The Latin America Data Base is part of the Latin American
Institute at the University of New Mexico. LADB boasts a nine-year track
record as a leader in the field of electronic publishing and database

America through its three electronic publications, "Chronicle of Latin

Thank you for sharing your information. We hope that the RETAnet
database will help make your materials more accessible to educators. If
