National Hispanic Heritage Month
During National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) we celebrate the heritage, culture, and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans to the United States. September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile, and Belize also celebrate their independence days in September.
This collection includes lessons, videos, artwork, music and many living testaments from diverse Latinx across the United States. The stories embedded in this collection offer students access and perspectives on topics that directly affect them, their families, friends and experiences as a young person in 2017 America. These resources can be incoroporated in the lessons you're already teaching during September and through the rest of the school year.
Please note that the files in this collection cannot be downloaded from WeTeachNYC because they link out to an external site.
