Latino History Curriculum

Drawing from the work of Labbo & Field (1999) and Dr. Cinthia Salinas, each semester my undergraduate students compose journey boxes about Latino people, places, and events that are not included in the curriculum.  Here I have provided a space where their work can be shared with others who wish to include these traditionally omitted histories in the classroom.  Using a combination of primary sources, document-based questions and original narratives, my students created a collection of resources that allow children (and adults) to travel on a learning journey about a wide variety of topics. To provide learning opportunities for emergent bilinguals, the resources indicated with an asterisk are in both English and Spanish.  

I think knowing one's history leads one to act in a more enlightened fashion. I can not imagine how knowing one's history would not urge one to be an activist.
