The ILAS K-12 Outreach Program strives to enhance the professional capacity of teachers in New York City's multicultural environment and promote the inclusion of Latin American history and culture into students's classrooms and daily lives. Drawing on the expertise and support of faculty and students across Columbia, the program offers educators resources and opportunities to learn about creative ways of incorporating Latin American history and culture into their curricula.
We offer a series of professional development opportunities for educators who want to learn more about ways to include Latin America and regional-specific content into their classrooms, and to strengthen teaching and learning about the region. These resources are produced with support from U.S. Department of Education Title VI funds and by students and alumni from various programs at Teachers College.
The engaging lessons below were created in partnership with Urban Arts Partnership and Teachers College; they are designed for any subject and for students of all ages. Upcoming guides are being produced by students and alumni at Teachers College.
