Language Arts Lesson Plans

The NHCC’s History and Literary Arts program has created a K-12 Social Studies and Language Arts curriculum inspired by Mundos de Mestizaje, the monumental buon fresco inside the torreón on the NHCC campus.  By engaging with the fresco, children and young adults explore Hispanic/Chicanx/Latinx identity and culture as the result of thousands of years of cultural cross-pollination.
