Something we teased on twitter a while back, we finally finished. We’ve added more famous latinas to our inspiring women bulletin board that we have labeled as “Las Poderosas”. This joins our bulletin board of female presidents from Latin American, titled “Las Presidentas”.
We hope to add biographies of many of these women to our class stories so students learn more about them and their impact. Last year we did a lesson on Dolores Huerta and are excited to add the new FluencyMatters’s novel “Selena” to our FVR library. We have already noticed that the bulletin board has piqued students’ interest who have started to ask questions about the women.
Have suggestions for other women to be included in “Las Poderosas”? Let us know in the comments. Also, if you know of resources in Spanish that talk about these women, please share them below.
