IN THE CLASSROOM
1973: EN LA LUZ / IN THE CLASSROOM
History, by collecting and interpreting various sources, seeks to establish and explain the events of the past. Each of us has our own personal history, and our communities define themselves within a context of communal history--the stories we tell about ourselves as communities and individuals. Because the period of time on either side of 1973 is not taught in schools in Chile, 1973: En la Luz developed a lesson that can be used by teachers and students to begin the process of recapturing the stories of that time period.
