Commemorating National Hispanic Heritage Month

In commemoration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we present this resource to help teachers engage students in thinking broadly and critically about the Hispanic American experience in all of its complexity. In highlighting the significant events as well as people that have made a substantial contribution to the Latino/Hispanic experience, instruction should incorporate history, literature, point of view, politics, first-person experience, the arts, and the struggle for equity.
