Over the past 30 years, the South has emerged as the nation’s most vibrant area of Latino growth and has transformed itself from a place that previously held almost no immigrants to a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and fast changing environment. ¡NUEVOlution!: Latinos and the New South explores the seismic demographic change that the South has and continues to experience, something that many historians consider to be the biggest story in southern history since the Civil Rights Movement. Today, Charlotte tops the Nielsen list of fastest growing major Latino metro areas, up over 400% since 2000.
The ¡NUEVOlution! curriculum encourages you to open the door for dialogue, build bridges between students of different backgrounds, introduce multiculturalism, and help students connect their personal stories to this new chapter in Southern history.
Below you will find lesson plans divided into three different sections.
Each lesson plan also incorporates videos from ¡NUEVOlution! that can be accessed directly within the lesson plan documents.
