Mexican Independence Day and Hispanic Heritage Month

Did you know that Mexico is just one of seven Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America that celebrates its independence between September 15 and October 15, the official dates of the Mes de la hispanidad or Mes de la herencia in the US?

Dear Spanish teacher, what’s your plan?

PLAN FOR EL MES DE LA HISPANIDAD

STEP 1: Get the word out to the whole school about El mes de la herencia (AND your school’s awesome Spanish program!) with school-wide BINGO!

STEP 2: On September 16–Mexican Independence Day–or leading up to it if it falls on a weekend–tackle El Grito de Dolores!

STEP 3: Give your students some background info on El mes de la herencia with three quick readings.

STEP 4: Learn El Juramento a la bandera in Spanish (and get in a little meaningful discussion while you’re at it!)

STEP 5: October 15 already!? Wrap up with a fabulous game of Jeopardy celebrating the powerful Latino influence in US culture!
