Students Take: Latino American Family and Culture
American Family
Thirteen Ed Online presents a special edition of STUDENTS' TAKE, featuring student-produced projects on the theme of Latino Culture. Drawing inspiration from the drama AMERICAN FAMILY, Thirteen Ed Online invited after school groups and classes -- including students of Latino heritage and other diverse backgrounds -- to tell us what the theme means to them. These students took on everything from creating original artwork and text to editing and citing materials used.
