Teacher's Guide: Hispanic Heritage and History in the United States

Social studies and humanities educators at a variety of levels should check out this teacher's guide assembled by the folks at EDSITEment to help celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15). This guide puts together numerous high-quality resources created for EDSITEment and other National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) projects, in addition to resources from around the web. Organized thematically, the guide opens with summaries and links to plentiful resources exploring the roots and influences of Hispanic culture, as well as its rich literary heritage. The Lessons from the Chihuahuan Desert section, which highlights teaching materials exploring themes of borders and borderlands, may be of particular interest to educators of grades 6-12. This section is followed by one containing links to more than a dozen of EDSITEment's other excellent lesson plans and curriculum units related to Hispanic history and culture, helpfully organized by academic subject. The guide closes with a selection of links to additional relevant online resources, some of which are available in both English and Spanish. While EDSITEment's resources are generally crafted with K-12 educators in mind, others interested in learning more about Latin American history and culture can also find something to interest them in this guide.
