This week the perfect thing to talk about is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. If you do not have a chance now, these resources could be used in February for Black History Month. My Spanish 2 class will soon be reading the novel Felipe Alou, which ties into civil rights and MLK. There is a slideshow in the teacher guide that I plan to use. Or to honor his legacy your classes could participate in a day of service. Below are other resources to celebrate the life and legacy of MLK.

Black History Month


The month of February is the perfect time to celebrate Afro-latinos during Black history month. I know that technically it is celebrating African Americans, but as a Spanish teacher, I am trying to expose my students to the variety of ethnicities through the Spanish speaking world. My favorite way to introduce culture is always with music, so I created a slideshow to show and celebrate afro-latino musical artists. It has classics like Celia Cruz and Susana Baca, mixed with current hit makers like Choquibtown and Tego Calderon.
