Each year we honor Hispanics who have contributed to the American culture. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I made a jigsaw group activity from the article entitled, "The Latino American Dream," from the magazine, AARP. Sixteen differerent celebrities, ranging from sports' stars, singers, reporters, chefs etc. share their stories. The articles are linked on the graphic organizer. Students read their individual summaries from the magazines, answer questions about their hertiage and what the U.S. has done for them. After students have read the biographies and answered questions in partners of two, then they meet with a new group and summarize their stories. Finally students answer three short answer questions with this group of their overall messages of hope and contributions. A sample biography has been included.
