Help Send Books to Classrooms for 

Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month


For Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month, Teaching for Change is providing free resources online to encourage teaching about Central America. 

The campaign features free classroom lessons, recommended reading lists, and poetry and prose from Central American activist writers.
Please give today and help send 50 sets of 
Rediscovering America to 50 classroom teachers.
Central America is nearly invisible in the school curriculum. Join the campaign to fill this critical gap:
  • Donate $50 and we'll give a set of Rediscovering America activity books to a classroom teacher plus you'll receive all three commemorative buttons.
  • Donate $25 and receive all three commemorative buttons to show your support: El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua.
  • Donate $10 and receive a commemorative button of your choice to show your support. 
We need your help now to break the silence about 
Central America in schools. 
More than 3 million Central Americans reside in the U.S. and many Central American youth attend school in this country, yet the region is missing from the curriculum. Elevate their histories and literature this month and all year long. 

Federal government employees in the D.C. metro area can designate Teaching for Change (#25947) as a charity for the 
Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area. Your pledge impacts the lives of the students, parents, and teachers who use our programs and educational resources.  

Remember to make your pledge by December 15.
