Hispanic Heritage Month
What an exciting time to feature the contributions of LatinX Writers, Speakers and Movie Makers!
Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with culturally relevant texts, video, and speeches that give students opportunity to expand and explore their emerging ELA skills.
Read about Historically Significant Events then invite students to share what they’ve learned.
This year I am offering a FIVE DAY WRITING CHALLENGE with daily prompts to write about the contributions of HISPANIC/LATINX Americans.
They begin Thursday, September 19th. Check back each day for a new prompt for each of five days. They were originally posted on Sarah J. Donovan’s website.
Alfredo Celedón Luján, of Sante Fe, New Mexico
is Vice President of the National Council of Teachers of English.
Invite students to bring in picture books, poems, and selections for their history books to write found poems, Pantoums, an “I Am From” poems about people, places and events reflecting the contributions of men, women and children of Hispanic heritage.
