This site's teaching resources about Central America fit very nicely with Unit 2 (La enseñanza) of the textbook Comunidades: Más allá del aula (Pearson). In particular, Lección 6 talks about how education is influenced by culture. The lack of emphasis on Central America and US relations with that region is a good example of how "educational culture" determines what we do and do not teach/learn.
