Teach Central America Week is October 2–6, 2023. To help educators teach about the rich history and culture of Central America — and the long history of U.S. involvement in the region — we have compiled free lessons, booklists, biographies, and more.
Our book “Putting the Movement Back into Civil Rights Teaching” and companion website emphasize the power of people through a diversity of stories, perspectives, essays, photographs, graphics, interviews, and interactive and interdisciplinary lessons.

The demand for our anti-racist, social justice resources has increased dramatically. Educators are turning to Teaching for Change for our carefully curated reading lists, virtual workshops, and lessons to help students learn about history beyond the textbook heroes and holidays, rethink the world around them, and see themselves as agents of change. Please give today to help students envision and build the future they deserve.
Teaching for Change depends on the support of committed individuals to serve as interns/fellows or volunteers throughout the year. In exchange for their time and expertise, we provide interns/fellows and volunteers with the chance to make a meaningful contribution to social justice education, hands-on experience, and opportunities to attend local and national forums on education.
