This unique set of curriculum materials, produced by Humanities Texas in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA), supports the exploration of the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have helped shape the United States over the last five centuries.
The cornerstone of the project is the six-part, NEH-supported documentary Latino Americans. This award-winning series, created for PBS by WETA public television, chronicles Latinos in the U.S. from the sixteenth century to present day.
This guide introduces teachers to the Latino Americans documentary series and related instructional materials.
Lesson plans for Episode 3 "War and Peace" and Episode 4 "The New Latinos" are now online, and additional curriculum sets will be released in the coming months. Sign up to receive an email notification each time new lesson plans become available.
Latino Americans: 500 Years of History has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association.
