¡Hola a todos! Another month has passed, and I just want to let you know that I am extremely grateful to share all of these resources with you. I really hope they are of use to you.

– Our friends at Remezcla shared a preview of the Latin American women featured in Rad Women Worldwide by Kate Schatz.

– With Fidel’s passing, Teaching for Change reminds us that the film Maestra (Teacher) is an invaluable resource for learning/teaching about Cuba. “Narrated by Alice Walker, Maestra explores the experiences of nine women who, as young girls, helped eradicate Cuban illiteracy within one year.”

— Also, at their Facebook page, Rethinking Education shared 6 Potential Brain Benefits Of Bilingual Education. “[Bilinguals] can pay focused attention without being distracted and also improve in the ability to switch from one task to another.”

–Here are 8 Ideas for Educators to Get Students Excited About the Public Library This School Year as shared by our friends at Lee & Low Books.

— Additionally, here is what happens in the classroom when you Don’t Say Nothing shared by our friends at Teaching Tolerance. “When their teachers choose to remain silent about moments of racial tension or violence—violence that may well touch students’ own communities or families—these children are overtly reminded of their inferior place in society.”

– Lastly, here are We Need Diverse Books’ top 5 Middle Grade Novels About Immigration. I personally love Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan.

Abrazos,
Alin Badillo
