This guide helps middle to high school Spanish teachers discover the activities and materials to use in your classes to highlight indigenous people from Latin America.
You can use the activities featured in the guide at any time during the school year or around specific dates like:
- International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples or Día de los Pueblos Originarios (August 9th)
- Indigenous People’s Day or Día de los Pueblos Indígenas (Colombus Day)
Having a guide with Spanish class activities about indigenous people is important for teachers because it provides them with the necessary resources to educate their students on indigenous cultures and history in Latin America.
Additionally, having these activities allows teachers to incorporate teaching methodologies that are culturally appropriate and relevant to their students. This will help create a safe learning environment in which students feel respected and taken seriously when learning about Indigenous cultures and histories.
Furthermore, it gives both the teacher and students an opportunity to learn more about the diverse histories “behind” the Spanish language.
Inside you will find:
- Presentation slides with activities
- Scaffolded Cultural Activities for novice, intermediate, and advanced students
