World View in Conflict ~ Introduction

We are going to begin looking at the World Views in Conflict unit, which is a case study of the Aztec and Spanish empires.  We will studying the defining characteristics of each group, followed by looking at the conflict that emerged between these two powerful empires.  The unit ends by looking at how we see elements of both cultures in the Mestizo (Mexican) culture.
