"Thank you! This is awesome! My first thoughts were to post it on my edline site and have my students click on the links as we approach the special days. Then give them some type of formative assessment to see what they have learned." – Anna S.
“Wow! This is an incredible resource for a first year Spanish teacher! Thank you so very much for the time and effort you put into compiling this!” – Theresa F.
What is the Cultural Calendar?
We have identified key dates for each country and found tools and resources you may share with your students about each unique, culturally important date.
With one simple click, you can access a variety of resources for many of the holidays in seconds. Includes:
- The Independence Days
- The Flag Days
- The Constitution Days
- World famous festivals
- Some religious festivals with important cultural expressions
- Popular local festivals and other important dates
We also include information about the celebrations. Many holidays are linked to a video, article or infographic in Spanish. This allows you to quickly learn about the date, the cultural importance and decide if it is relevant for your students.
If you are a Spanish teacher who…
1. loves sharing cultural festivals, holidays and important festivities with your students
2. enjoys presenting these celebrations, but can’t find the time to research each and every one
3. wants to include more culture activities and discussions in the classroom
4. sees your students engaged and enjoying these cultural topics
looks to fulfill any cultural requirements or standards your curriculum includes
And if you don't want to lose track of all the holidays and when they happen and spend hours searching for the activities and resources to share, for just one holiday or lesson... you should get the 2017 Cultural Calendar.
