Mi ciudad latina: Building Bridges to Local Language Communities in the World Languages Classroom

Matthew Kelly, Spanish, Independence High School

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


Students of Spanish will learn about Latino life in their own community in a series of lessons aligned with topics in most Spanish II curricula. A carefully crafted series of mini-lessons, interviews, video experiences, projects and excursions will place an emphasis on learning about speakers of the language students are learning right in their own immediate community, rather than abroad or in the United States generally.
