P11 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - La Historia de Mi Familia: Connecting Hispanic Students to History through Primary Source Documents

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

More than 180 ninth-grade students at Esperanza Academy Charter School in north Philadelphia spent the spring of 2013 learning how to "do" history. The exhibit, La Historia de mi Familia, shares the family history stories uncovered by thirty of the Esperanza ninth-graders.
