This is a thematic curricular unit concerning Hispanics. As an educator, I designed these user-friendly lessons, which target over subjects from instructional Objectives to Materials list, Scoring Guides for Evaluation, Modifications and Challenge exercises. Having had to implement and write curriculum for my school district in the past I appreciate the need to be as explicit and consistent as possible, giving step-by-step instructional lessons for the educators.
The lessons, activities, and materials have been collected and written to serve, as suggestions for instructional outcomes in a thematic presentation of Hispanic influence within the United States. Following the middle school philosophy, it is my intention that team teachers will review and coordinate the materials in formulating their lessons. A variety of learning styles and concepts such as cooperative learning and cultural awareness are presented. Also included are suggested modifications for lesson variation useful in subsequent schools years and ideas for gifted students.
