In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, which continues until Oct. 15, teach your students the stories of U.S. Latinos and how they inform the broader American narrative. From southern Florida to the San Juan Islands of Washington state, and from the pre-history of the nation through today's current events and issues, Latino experiences illuminate our country’s past, present and future, as well as its struggle to live up to its ideals.

This collection of videos, lesson plans and classroom resources invite teachers and students to explore the history, people and issues chronicled in the PBS series, “Latino Americans.” Along the way, it engages students in dramatic real-life stories and offers primary texts that serve the goals of the Common Core.
