Hispanic Heritage Month takes place each year from September 15 to October 15, commemorating the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans. With celebrations of all shapes and sizes across the U.S., this Hispanic Heritage Month is a great time to engage students in learning and discussion about the contributions and history of Hispanic Americans and Latinx people. For a brief discussion of the difference between the terms “Hispanic” and “Latinx,” as well as the historical background of Hispanic Heritage Month, be sure to check out our previous blog post on Teaching Hispanic Heritage Month. You’ll find helpful information AND even more resources!
