Description

Traditional history programs have long omitted or downplayed the critical role that Hispanics have played in U.S. history. Many activists have advocated and created sweeping social change or contributed to the restitution of societal wrongs through their actions.

This comprehensive Teach for Justice unit will focus on five important (and often forgotten) historical figures of the 1900s using articles and mini documentaries as our secondary sources. The 150-page unit for high school students includes lesson plans for in-person and virtual learning, as well as essay questions, project based learning options, and research & present topics. Options for worksheets and summative assessments allow for differentiated learning.

The five figures covered in this unit are:

  • Jovita Idár
  • Sylvia Mendez
  • Ralph Lazo
  • Willie Velásquez
  • and Helen RodrĂ­guez TrĂ­as

Currently, this unit is available in English only.

Lesson 4 (Willie Velásquez) is available for free here: A More Complete History: Hispanic Activist Willie Velásquez (Lesson 4)
