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. Consider writing PANTOUM POEMS in response to art by Frieda Kalho and/or Diego Rivera. And, learn about Alfredo Celedón Luján, too.
Lost for ideas?
Alfredo Celedón Luján, of Sante Fe, New Mexico
is recently elected 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.
