Unpacking concepts that intersect with Latinx cultures and identities serves as a model for how students can explore identities that include our students’ and our own. Using a culturally based casestudy, I engage with the big idea of how belonging leads to empowerment. Folx will gain knowledge and language to challenge single narrative histories through a brief analysis of linguistic history and a series of practical cultural dialogues. Students make connections from their new cultural and historical knowledge to identify intersections between Latinx history and various contexts to empower learners.
Through various lessons, projects and presentations, students and teachers will be able to…
-understand a brief evolution of the Latinx identity.
-connect linguistic structures with historical and cultural contexts.
-engage with a series of images and short videos to incite dialogue.
-interrogate the concept of and identify flaws in single narratives.
