Welcome to the Chicano/Latino Studies Curriculum Project. This project seeks to connect people and resources. It seeks to make resources accessible to community inside and outside of schools usually the ivory tower because as many of us know who have taken these courses or come to this knowledge, it usually comes to us in college. Those resources remain inaccessible to those who do not go to college. These resources remain inaccessible to many of our K-12 students who do not get to take classes about themselves and the history of Chicana/o/x and Latina/o/x people in the U.S.
This is also a place to build community for those who wish to use digital archives and resources for use in Chicano/Latino Studies (and general Ethnic Studies courses). I travel from school to school and need access to resources remotely.
My name is Irene Sanchez. I have 10 years of experience teaching Ethnic Studies at the College/University, High School and now Middle School level as well and just as importantly in community spaces. To make suggestions, please contact me. I welcome contributions for the blog about teaching Ethnic Studies in general or related topics or a new interesting take on a resource that can be of use. To connect with me for presentations, workshops, or speaking engagements regarding this work please use the contact form and also see http://www.irenesanchezphd.com
