The CLACS Teacher Residency Program, funded by the Department of Education, was first piloted in the fall of 2010. Through this program, select teachers work closely with NYU faculty members, NYU Bobst Library resources, and CLACS K-12 outreach staff to research topics relevant to Latin America. Residents gain expert support and research opportunities to develop curricular materials for use in their classrooms. The culminating event of the Teacher Resident Program is a one-day conference during which Residents present materials to an audience of their peers. The research topic for the Fall 2010 CLACS Teacher Residency Program was the Cold War and Latin America. Three NYC teachers have spent the last several months working with NYU faculty and CLACS support staff in order to develop classroom materials on a particular area of interest to them relating to the Cold War and Latin America. The three sub-topics researched during the Fall 2010 residency were: "Media Representations of the Civil War in El Salvador," "Racial Discourse in Revolutionary Cuba," and "Economic Policy of Chile during the Allende and Pinochet Years."
