NOTE: Be aware that by the end of the semester you must read a short story in Spanish & write a review. Choose one now and be working on it all semester.

See if your community holds an annual multicultural celebration. Dates to consider: National Hispanic Month is September 15 – October 15 due to the high number of Spanish-speaking countries that celebrate their independence day during that time period. March 31 is  César Chávez birthday, a state holiday in AZ, CA, CO, MI, NM, TX, UT, WI. Contact your local community college: some show International Films with English subtitles, some college Spanish classes have activities open to the public, demonstrations or displays around Nov 1st  or 2nd in honor of “ dia de los muertos,”OR May 5th in honor of “cinco de mayo” (the anniversary of the battle of Puebla).
