Here are some resources to teach your students about this important American.
Cesar Chaves quote

Same video in Spanish.

Youtube also has a PBS documentary “Chicano: Stuggle in the Fields.” My students already have some knowledge of the farm workers’ strike by reading the novel Esperanza Rising.

Check out tons of images including quotes related to César on Pinterest.

Or end Women’s History month with a unit about The cofounder of the NFWA, Dolores Huerta.

César Chávez: Lucha por los trabajadores del campo por Eric Braun is a graphic novel Cesar Chavez lucha por los trabajores del campothat teaches about this legendary American and his fight for workers’ rights in a comic book format. You can find new and used editions on Amazon or buy new from the publisher.

Capstone Press publishes other graphic novels in Spanish. You can check them out here. How engaging for your students to read about topics in a comic book format with a lot of dialogue!
