Celebrate Hispanic Heritage month by joining WGBY and our many community partners this Friday, October 25, for Presencia, an evening of music, culture, food, and dance to benefit the Latino Youth Media Institute and North End Center for Literacy and Learning (NECLL) at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (directions). We’ve been practicing our salsa and would love to teach you, or perhaps you can teach us a few new steps!
And thanks to PBS LearningMedia, we have more resources to add to those we shared in an earlier post this month:
Hispanic Exploration | Library of Congress | 4-12: This set of primary resources from the Library of Congress provides a window into this time period, as well as a Teacher’s Guide with historical context and teaching suggestions.
Baseball & Social Change | WGBH | 5-8: In this blended lesson supporting literacy skills, students learn about baseball legend Roberto Clemente, his early years in the U. S. during segregation and changes in the 1960s that made the culture more open to Clemente’s Latino culture.
Revolutionary Art | LPB | 9-12: In this lesson accompanied by a film clip from the documentary ‘The Storm that Swept Mexico’, students examine the use of art as historical narrative and social commentary, and create a mural inspired by the Mexican Muralist movement.
