Instructor: Christopher Muscato

Hispanic Heritage Month is recognized in the United States from September 15 - October 15 of each year. The following projects can help you incorporate Hispanic history and culture into your classroom.

Hispanic Heritage Month

In the United States, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 since Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua recognize this as their independence day. Mexico recognizes its independence on September 16. Hispanic Heritage Month, which lasts through October 15, is meant to honor the lives and contributions of Hispanic Americans throughout history, and to celebrate the influence of Hispanic cultures within the United States today.

Please note that any of these projects can be completed with or without a language component.
