Site URL: HispanicHeritage.org
Content: While targeting students and educators, HispanicHeritage.org celebrates the achievements of Hispanic Americans and provides role models for youth.
Design: The site isn’t big and doesn’t offer a lot in terms of classroom materials. It does, however, feature a robust design that pays tribute to the Hispanic community’s cultural past while maintaining 21st-century components one would expect from a professional Web site.
The site’s main goal is to promote the organization’s empowerment and professional development initiatives, and it does so admirably. The site is not only very nice to look at, but also easy to navigate.
Review: The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) identifies Latino leaders as high school students and provides resources for them as they advance through college and transition into the workforce. Additionally, the site provides information on educational grants, special networking opportunities and events happening in your area.
The foundation and its site have a clear mission to offer professional development tools to Latino educators. It accomplishes this through the Hispanic Teacher Award Program, dubbed LOFT (Latino On Fast Track), a leadership and workforce-development program.
Bottom Line: For teachers serving Latino students, a stop at HispanicHeritage.org is a must.
