It's Teach Central America Week!
This week hundreds of teachers from 36 U.S. states, D.C., and four other countries (Bermuda, Canada, Colombia, and Honduras) will teach about Central America! We are thrilled that so many of you have committed to uplift the culture and history of Central America from October 4 - 10 and the rest of the school year.
We are excited to learn from you and hope that you would be willing to share your teaching story from this week. Remember to jot down notes from your experiences and take some photos, if possible.

Thanks to the generosity of several publishers, in exchange for your teaching story, you can receive a book of your choice about Central America.
Over the last few weeks, we have highlighted resources to teach about Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Stay tuned this week for teaching resources about El Salvador.

You can find many more resources for teaching about Central America this week and all year long at
