High school students getting in the Hispanic Heritage Month spirit? Yes, it can happen. Throw in there a Mexican Anthropologist and Hispanic food and you have yourself a celebration worthy enough to be considered "cool".

Ms. Whigham and her students celebrated National Hispanic Heritage Month by inviting a Mexican Anthropologist from the University of Georgia. He delivered an interesting talk about culture and identity. Afterwards, they culminated their activities by sharing a fiesta!

Ms. Whigham is an ESOL teacher at Winder-Barron High School in Winder, GA.

Oct 04 Conoce a Miguel de Cervantes – Free Resources for Spanish Teachers

By Spanish Classroom 4738 Views 3 comments

El Mes de la Herencia Hispana es una ocasión ideal para dar a conocer a los estudiantes las contribuciones de algunos latinos ilustres al mundo. Hoy, conozcamos a Miguel de Cervantes de la mano de la autora ecuatoriana Edna Iturralde.

Edna nos habla de Miguel…

Imagínate poder conversar con un escritor tan importante como Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. ¡Cuántas cosas podríamos preguntarle! A mí me gustaría saber, por ejemplo, de dónde sacó el nombre de don Quijote. Dicen que cuando se casó con Catalina Salazar fue en un pueblo de la región de La Mancha, cerca de Toledo, y que allí conoció a un señor de apellido Quijada. En la historia de don Quijote, Cervantes cuenta que el nombre verdadero del personaje que soñaba con ser un caballero andante era Alonso Quijano y que vivía en “algún lugar de La Mancha”. ¿Te parece una coincidencia?

Hispanic Heritage Month Party

Christine Mosso

How can we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month without some kind of party? We should have a party, that’s part of Hispanic heritage, too. Instead of the usual bring some food, play some music, let’s try something a little bit different—a prop party. It’s a little like a costume party.
