Hispanic Heritage Month 2022

Sept 15 - Oct 15

The 2022 Hispanic Heritage Month national theme is Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation. City Schools of Decatur joins our country in paying tribute to the generations of Latin@ Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society.

Explore this collection of teaching and learning resources about 30 Inspiring Latinas/Latinos Who Have Shaped the United States curated by the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Latino.

In 2019, Teaching for Change launched Teach Central America Week to encourage and support teaching about Central America. They have collected lessons, booklists, biographies of noted historical figures, and readings for free use by classroom teachers.

This work is important.
