Product Description

This Notable Hispanics of Pop Culture is a week-long research project on famous and popular Hispanic celebrities and "do-ers" of modern times. Included is a list of over 125 famous Hispanics for your students to choose from. This list includes current actors, musicians, and athletes such as Shakira, Selena Gomez, Prince Royce, etc. The list also includes some longtime pop culture icons such as Pablo Picasso, Roberto Clemente, etc. Students love combing through the list and discovering some of their favorite celebrities are on it! This list will be updated over time as new celebrities come into the picture.

Originally created for my master's thesis on using pop culture in the Spanish classroom, this project is one of my students' favorite culture projects. Because this is a presentation project, the students not only learn about the one person they choose to research. They learn about the accomplishments of many famous Hispanics from the presentation portion of this project. This project is perfect for Hispanic Heritage Month or any time of the year!

For this research project, your students will need three-four days on individual computers to research information and develop a slides project (Google Slides, Powerpoint, etc.). You will want to reserve another two days or so for presentations.

Included in this project are teacher notes, detailed student instructions, a list of over 125 Hispanic celebrities, one general grading rubric (100 points), and one structured grading rubric (100 points). This project is great for 7th-12th-grade students.
