Afro-Latino research tip sheet  

Here are some tips for your research. This is also in the file manager as a Word document.

You will find the links to RESOURCES in the File Manager.

Explore the resources posted to my announcements page on the school website. Be mindful that you are researching people who are AFRO-LATINOS. That means their heritage is a mix of Latino and African or African-American.

After you have decided who to research, open your email and send me the name. My email address is:

Now, using the basic facts available in the articles I listed, start searching for more information.

You need to take notes as you go. I suggest doing this in Google docs, once you have logged in to your district email. It will be easy to find your work this way.

You need to find the following information:

Full name of the person.

Date and place of birth.

If deceased, date and place of death.

Names of family members and relationship (siblings, parents, spouse, children, etc)

A photo or graphic to use as the Cover Image. (The profile image is automatically selected when you enter a name.) You can save it in google drive.

Career field.

Other interests.


Accomplishments of this person, and any obstacles they had to overcome.

Several significant events in their life. You will use these to create 5 posts that COULD have been written by your subject. Pay attention to when these happened, so that you can put dates on your posts.

Consider locating a video about this person, for bonus points. There is an option to insert the link in Fakebook.

When you have all the information you need, you can check with me for the FAKEBOOK instructions.

Only complete these once.       ***I am not reopening old quizzes today.

Please GO TO EDPUZZLE and make sure you complete pending assignments. Remember to watch all the way to the end of each, and answer the questions. If you still have not set this up, we will have to take care of that one day after school (after the break), because this should have be done weeks ago. If you have not done the first 2 asignments, you will have to arange to do those after school. They are currently archived and unavailable to you.

After you have completed your work in EdPuzzle, you will begin researching to prepare a lesson you will teach about some cultural tradition in the Spanish speaking world. Refer to the handout, and remember the handout is also in the file manager, in Handouts, called Culture Lesson. 

Be sure to sign up for the date that you will present your lesson at Also fill in which country and custom you are teaching. On the day you have chosen, be sure you are prepared. If you want coppies of handouts for the class, I need them 24 hours ahead of time. You also have access to the activeboard. Be sure to use first and last name, and enter your email address. (that you actually USE) That way, you will receive a reminder emall 2 days ahead of time. Finished?

Work independently in mango/doulingo/quizlet.


Any students resubmitting the poster project will need to submit electronically, after Thanksgiving break, and no later than December 8. this includes resubmissions due to plagiarism as well as resubmissions for improved grade.

Please refer to the RUBRIC in the File Manager. If your second grade is lower than the first, you will be stuck with that. 

Computer Lab Friday 11/17  

We have lab 703 this Friday. You will have a quiz, an edpuzzle assignment, and you will work independently in Mango/Duolingo/Quizlet.

Late work  

Anything you have not turned in will not be part of the grades that post this week. anything you don't turn in by Friday, we'll need to sit down after school in December so you can get it done. Please don't leave this until January. 

Instructions for the ropa and cuerpo from today (11/13)  

Remember, you need to write 10 phrases on the back of your puzzle page. If you don't rmeember the structure, check the file Manager under Other Instructions and Documents.


Four (4) days of class time over two weeks have been allotted for you to have access to technology to work on your poster project. If you waited until the last minute and technology got in the way, it's unfortunate, but it is also the reason I set aside so much time. I worked very hard to ensure that everyone could have an opportunity to work productively and utilize technology. 

This was assigned on  10/17, with a due date of 11/1. I expect everyone to turn in a completed poster. Choices to do otherwise carry unpleasant consequesnces. 

Office 365 available for free to students  

You will need to give youre BCSS email address for this, but you will have free access to MS Office: 

31 octubre 2017
