Educators like LAMP classroom materials

We’re delighted that educators from the USA, Mexico, and abroad are beginning to use supplemental classroom materials from the Lincoln and Mexico Project (LAMP) to cover what history textbooks omit.

The materials are based on the book Abraham Lincoln and Mexico, which grew out of an Advanced Placement US History class taught by internationally-respected historian and educator Michael Hogan in 2013. Now, the book is in many university libraries across the USA and also in the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.

LAMP offers educators a complimentary package of materials that includes a .pdf document or eBook version of Dr. Hogan’s book, a three-act play based on the book, and complete lesson plans based on the book and the play. The materials give educators and students access to archival documents examining Abraham Lincoln’s support for Mexico as congressman and as president to better understand historical relations between the USA and Mexico, and to facilitate discussion about current and future relations.

During the 2017-2018 academic year, one campus of the California State University system began using the paperback book in history courses. A high school in Mexico is using the book in an APUSH course, and one in Arizona is using the materials in social studies courses. If you know educators who might be interested in using the materials in the coming 2018-2019 academic year, just send their contact information to and we’ll take it from there. Thanks.
