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.  

Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here.
