    Literature Guides

    The LAII's Literature Guides are lesson plans and activities that accompany young adult novels that engage in some way with Latin America, the Caribbean or Latinos in the United States. Each guide includes background on the author and book, thematic lessons and activities, and resources to support or extend the use of the book in the classroom. The lesson plans and activities encourage the teaching of literacy through the content areas and are linked to the Common Core State Standards. 

    This great site also has several guides to selected children's books that were recognized by the Américas Award.  Please go to the following link to access titles and literature guides: Latin American & Iberian Institute Literature Guides
