The next couple weeks the perfect thing to talk about is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  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.

Teach for Justice

This year more than ever there is a need to teach with a social justice focus. Here are a few Free resources from others for Spanish class. 





Black History Month


The month of February is the perfect time to celebrate Afro-latinos during Black history month. (As well as incorporating diverse voices all year long).  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. Version 1 has classics like Celia Cruz and Susana Baca, mixed with current hit makers like Choquibtown and Tego Calderon. 

+ there is now a 2nd version with 22 more songs, including many recent hits. There is also a Bundle option as well for the best deal!

  1. I didn't know you have a second version of Afro-Latino Song of the day, I bought the old one. :(
    Do you update the lists from previous years like you do with Mania Musical?

    1. If you have not used it yet, you can request a refund from TPT & get the new one! They are each a separate resource, I do not have a growing bundle.
