National Hispanic Heritage Month: September 15 – October 15

Ever wonder why National Hispanic heritage Month starts in the middle of this month?  September 15 was the date chosen to start the celebration because five Latin American countries — Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua — celebrate their independence on this date.
The PBS LearningMedia collection, Latino Americans, provides a rich array of bilingual lesson plans, activities, videos, and other classroom resources for grades 4-13+. You can join Antonio Gomez, Education Director at KCTS, to find out how you can use engaging, CCSS-aligned resources

to enhance your next social studies lesson.  View the recorded Latinos American webinar or the entire collection.
