Hola Latinopians! And welcome to February of 2012!
As you will see, your Tia Tenopia has a whole new batch of Latino cultural events in major U.S. cities listed in February Events. Also this week, we are posting our first Latinopia Teacher’s Guide for secondary school teachers and university professors who want to use Latinopia as a resources for their classroom instruction. This first Teacher’s Guide is titled The Latino Voice in American Society and utilizes the timeline, biographies and videos you will find on Latinopia to teach a course which will allow students to identify and find their own creative voice. Check it out! And by the way, those of you who are using Latinopia as a classroom resources, leave us a message and let us know how so we can pass the word on to other instructors.
Also more news in February. Watch for a new Latinopia blog written by Dan Guerrero, one of the pioneering Mexican American television and stage producers whose credits include the Paul Rodriguez Show as well as major stage events in New York and Los Angeles.
And last, but not least, we showcase a new film by Mexican director Roberto Olivares who brings us an exciting Mexican musical group, Grupo Xime, in concert with a Macedonian musical ensemble, “Kokani Orchestra.” Check out this cool and zany music!
Abrazos, Tia Tenopia
