Teaching about Puerto Rico
Caribbean Connections: Puerto Rico introduces students to the history, geography, identity, government, economy, environment, and culture of Puerto Rico through essays, poetry, and fiction.
The second edition of our book Caribbean Connections: Puerto Rico has been out of print since 2006. In light of the current crisis on the island after Hurricane Maria and thanks to the support of generous donors, we have placed the book online for free download by classroom teachers.
We welcome donations so that we can produce an updated edition of Caribbean Connections: Puerto Rico. In addition to support for the book, we encourage direct support for people in Puerto Rico. This article in The Nation provides recommendations: “Puerto Rico Still Needs Our Help. Here’s What You Can Do“.
Many thanks to the people and organizations below for their support of Caribbean Connections: Puerto Rico.
