Hello colleagues, Many members are likely aware that Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated between Sept. 15 and October 15 each fall. There are so many cultures represented by individuals who speak Spanish, and everyone can benefit from learning more-- including us teachers!
Here are some resources that may be helpful as you think about the value of this topic.
- Latino Civil Rights Timeline --Teaching Tolerance
- Spanish and Chicana English -- PBS for Educators (discusses bilingualism and codeswitching among other topics)
- Hispanic Resources for Teachers -- Smithsonian Education
Let us know what you find useful and how you are engaging on this important topic in your classroom.
Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
