Cesar Chavez was a powerful figure in the labor and civil rights movements for decades, but many students don't know about this influential and inspirational man. Chavez is a very critical Latino standout that should be more prominently represented in American history– and in your classroom and school– especially in communities that serve many Latino students.
Poster #607 from Youth Change Workshops is a perfect way to bring in lessons about diversity and to celebrate this famous Latino hero. Use this poster for discussions on social justice and equality in your history, social studies, current world issues, or language arts classes and get students motivated to talk about how they, too, can impact the world.
The poster features a bold, graphic design with a famous quote from Cesar Chavez– "It is my deepest belief that only by giving our lives do we find life." Students can explore what that quote means to them as they learn about the history of the labor movement. Also, this poster is a perfect addition to any service programs and will serve to motivate youth as they volunteer. A great way to inspire all your students to think about giving and serving others, Poster #607 is a beautiful addition to your classroom walls. More importantly, it also serves as a powerful way to teach all youth about an American, Latino hero that may not be highlighted in their history textbooks.
A perfect motivational and inspirational message, this quote can reach your most disinterested or checked-out students by challenging them to think about their role in the world. If other interventions haven't worked to build awareness of diversity or to encourage your students to be more thoughtful of others, Poster #607 is the perfect way to show them they have something to give. Help your students to find what they are passionate about with this powerful message from Cesar Chavez and this striking poster from Youth Change Workshops. For classrooms that include many Latino students, Poster #607 will be a particularly important, must-have addition to your walls.
