Haro 's class, I would assign to each of my students one day, in which they would have to give a presentation about their families and their culture. They would share something that is important to the culture of their families. This assignment is connected to my teaching framework, which is about creating a sense of a familia. Students would demonstrate their identities. Furthermore, I would ask them to create a poster with their historical migration map. Students will trace back the origin of their family or ancestors and how they got to the United States. This particular assignment will help students not only to know about their history but will assist them to create their identity and to appreciate the efforts of their families. In their reading, Marcos Pizarro, and Andrew Christian say that "Students of color rarely get the opportunity to see themselves [or their families] as historical or even contemporary agents in the content of their courses" (3). Therefore, students will appreciate themselves or their families for their contribution and struggles.
As I mentioned before, my classes are not going to be easy because there will be much reading, writing and presenting. However, students will have fun. One practice that I will enforce in my classroom will be lunch appreciation once per month. Whether if I teach in middle or high school, I will create a student government group and we are going to have a raffle every day, which will require students to buy a raffle ticket for twenty-five cents. Part of the collected money will be used for our month lunch appreciation, which will help us make a strong connection with other
