Central American Studies Showcase: Celebration, Education y Communidad

In an effort to support California’s newly adopted Ethnic Studies Requirement (AB 101) the California Subject Matter Project provided funding to build and strengthen Ethnic Studies for K-12. With the support of this funding, the UCI History Project created a Central American Studies curriculum project that supports the needs of various Central American communities, Central American students, and educators in the classroom. We focused on Los Angeles as Los Angeles County is home to the largest Central American population in the U.S., but these units can be taught in any classroom.

Teachers have been working for over a year to develop units and lesson plans, join us to learn more and receive early access to the units included. Our event includes:

  • Workshop presentations of units
  • Curriculum Fair
  • Workshops for parents and families
  • Free breakfast and lunch for attendees who pre-register
  • Live musical performance
  • Panel featuring Central American scholars and educators
  • We will have interpretation in Spanish
