Latinos in Oregon

Latinos in Oregon

Letter from the Author

To the dedicated educators,

Before you dive into the materials of this unit I wish to provide some context. Firstly, this unit was created during my teacher candidacy as my submission to the edTPA that I taught to my Oregon History students. In light of this, much of the unit was made in connection with historigraphical skills that my students here honing. While you review this unit, each lesson will contain previous pedogagical approaches I have taken, hyperlinks to the files via Google Drive, and PDF copies of said materials. Lastly, I wish to personally thank you for teaching your students the history of my beautiful community. If you ever find yourself in need of assistance or would like to share anything please feel free to reach out to me at vochoa.research@gmail.com

Seguimos Adelante,

Victor Ochoa
