FLANC 2018

Thank you to those who attended my sessions at FLANC this year.  It was a pleasure to work with you!  I’m available for workshops and professional development for schools & districts–please contact me if I can help you.

Here are links to follow up to sessions & workshops I presented:

Make ’em laugh, Make ’em cry: Comprehensible resources that engage students’ hearts, minds, and souls

Dolores Huerta

One quick resource to share today that is part of a larger unit of study on leaders and their impacts on community, especially through public art.  This is an extension of our reading of La Calaca Alegre, which is set in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago.  In the book, like in real life Pilsen itself, murals play a key role as though they were a character themselves.

Among other people, we have been learning about César Chávez and Dolores Huerta.  The September-October issue of El Sol has an article about Huerta, and I have prepared an interpretive task to accompany it.  You can get a copy of it here .

Update (Nov. 17, 2018): Latino USA’s podcast from Nov. 6 is an episode on Dolores Huerta and her daughter.  Listen to it here.
