From September 15th to October 15th we recognize National Hispanic American Heritage Month. It’s a time to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society today.
According to the Hispanic Heritage Month site, “National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. During this month and throughout the year, the National Park Service and our partners, share history, heritage, and accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino Americans of past and present.”
For teachers looking to explore and integrate this history more robustly into their lesson plans, check out the EDSITEment Teacher’s Guide. This Teacher’s Guide offers valuable resources, lesson plans for K-12 classrooms, and “think piece” about events and experiences across Hispanic history and heritage sure to keep your students engaged and interested.
