New Dolores Huerta Curriculum


Did you know that April 10th is Dolores Huerta Day? At least, it is observed as a state holiday in California thanks to former governor Jerry Brown who made it official back in 2018.

And this year, Huerta will be celebrating her 90th birthday! And to celebrate both the holiday and the birthday, educators have been working with the Dolores Huerta Foundation to create a brand new curriculum that is available for FREE online!

From what I've seen, there are lessons for grades 1 through 11, plus a lot of additional resources. I'm not sure if there are still more lessons that are going to be published, but so far there is a whole page full of materials available for download.

And you don't even have to live in California to use them!

If you're looking for resources to celebrate the holiday in your classroom, go and take a look.

¡Feliz cumpleaƱos, Sra. Huerta!
