A core component of LLILAS Benson’s Public Engagement program is training of K-12 teachers to enhance knowledge and teaching about Latin America and U.S. Latino/as. Recognizing the increasingly diverse student population within the Austin area and beyond, we strive to support multicultural and culturally responsive teaching, especially for Latino/a students.

As part of our K-12 programming, we offer:

LLILAS is a founding member of Hemispheres, the international outreach consortium at UT Austin that offers educational programming on Western Europe; Latin America; the Middle East; Russia, East Europe, and Eurasia; and South Asia. Many of our K-12 activities are organized through Hemispheres in order to provide a comparative perspective on global issues.

To stay up to date on all of our upcoming events and new resources, please e-mail LLILAS Benson Associate Director of Programs Paloma Díaz to be added to our listserve.

Workshop, curriculum, and many other LLILAS Benson Public Engagement resources are possible through the support of the U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center grant.
