Welcome to the Socio Economic Development Blog!!!

I hope you had a nice warm summer vacation!  I also hope you are ready to begin a new and exciting academic year.  We will try and have fun, and learn as we go through Latin American history, its politics and culture.  We will use as a text the book The Guide To The Perfect Latin American Idiot by Alvaro Vargas Llosa, Plino Apuleyo Mendoza and Carlos Alberto Montaner.  Our biggest challenge will be to incorporate technology to improve academic achievement.  We will try to use blogs, video and audio podcasts, youtube and teacher tube videos, links to internet articles etc. 

Through this course you will acquire writing, technological, reading, comparison and contrasting and critical thinking skills.

Once again welcome, and let us have a productive year.
