More on the web:

From the  National Hispanic Heritage Month site -- this is a Web portal that is a collaborative project of the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.  There are exhibits and collections, images, audio/video, a section for teachers and information on the images on the site.

From iCONN -- EBSCO and ProQuest have graciously agreed to furnish free access for a limited time to some of their licensed resources relevant to National Hispanic Heritage Month to iCONN users.  The resources are on an iCONN web page that you can access from their landing pages or classic menus, you can follow this link and click on the Hispanic Heritage Month link at the bottom of the More iCONN Content...section.

From Teaching for Change --- they have launched a campaign during Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month to support and encourage teaching about Central America.  They are offering a collection of lessons, readings, biographies, book lists, and an introductory slide show on major Central American writers and activists for free use by classroom teachers.
