NAIS Conference 2.25.2011
“Cultural Respect: The Diversity of Latin America” This presentation will explore and discuss the diversity of the countries of Latin America as well as the heritage of Latinos/Hispanics living in the United States. It will provide teachers and administrators with an overview of the geography, history, traditions, foods and accomplishments of Latin America.
Workshop attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding of “Latino/Hispanic” culture and its diversity and therefore be better prepared to teach and interact with students and families of Latin American background. This presentation will also provide an opportunity for participants to learn about the many accomplishments of Latin American and Caribbean professionals such as artists, writers, musicians, and culinary experts. With this knowledge, participants will find inspiration and new materials for their own lessons/units dealing with Latin America. Additionally, we hope to support the Independent School community to create a climate of cultural respect within their schools i.e. faculty, students, parents, administrators, and board members.
