Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

My students have to pass Focus Areas in order to show mastery of content they are learning in their classes. They have to independently take notes and study and take these Focus Areas during their Advisory time.

I want to rewards my students every time they pass their Focus Area for the hard work they have to put in order to master it.

Those Focus Areas are only passed if they get 8 out of 10 questions right, and they get really excited to see it turn from red to green.

Ms. Alvarado
Grades 9-12
