Our EDSITEment feature for Hispanic Heritage Month, at http://edsitement.neh.gov/feature/national-hispanic-heritage-month
gives you an endless array of opportunities to learn about Hispanic culture and
heritage. For example, the feature will guide you to follow the steps of a
young woman from adulthood http://edsitement.neh.gov/lesson-plan/esperanza-rising-learning-not-be-afraid-start-over
and to follow the early missionaries in the United States by establishing the
Mission de Nuestra Señora de la Concepción http://edsitement.neh.gov/lesson-plan/mission-nuestra-sentildeora-de-la-concepcioacuten-and-spanish-mission-new-world
through a rich lesson plan that works with Picturing America as well (http://picturingamerica.neh.gov/ ).



Additional resources, like EDSITEment-approved website When
Worlds Collide, with a great collection of multimedia resources and student
resources, http://www.pbs.org/kcet/when-worlds-collide/,
takes you and your students to explore the origins of the Latino culture and
the beginnings of a New World in the Americas.



Another journey that students can take, and that this
EDSITEment feature presents, is to the world of poetry. You can learn about the
first great Latin American Poet, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a nun, an intelectual
who lived and published during the 1600s in Mexico (New Spain), http://edsitement.neh.gov/curriculum-unit/sor-juana-ines-de-la-cruz-first-great-latin-american-poet.
For another learning adventure in poetry.



So, how will you use these resources?
