Hispanic Heritage Month Resources

National Hispanic Heritage Month ends Monday, October 15. If you haven't used our resources for the month at your practice or in your classroom, there's still time! 
Congress Bills » Your students can debate census reform, comprehensive immigration reform, eliminating Columbus Day, and seven other bills centered on issues impacting Hispanic communities. 
U.S. Extemp Practice Questions » What should the Democratic Party do to mobilize Hispanic voters this November? What should K-12 schools do to help English language learners excel? How should the United States deal with those seeking asylum from troubled Latin American nations? Your students can practice for their next Extemp round with these and more questions. Plus, if you have a Resource Package subscription, you can also access Advanced Extemp Questions and Resources for both IX and USX!  
Impromptu Prompts » Check out our collection of Impromptu Prompts, created in partnership with the Sam Donaldson Center for Communication Studies, which includes quotations, Latinx Literature, and more. 
While National Hispanic Heritage Month is ending, we hope you'll continue to incorporate these resources into your classroom throughout the year! 

ProTip: Transferring Schools

Did you know your NSDA login should follow you from school to school? Keep your same username, password, and point accumulations by simply having your account transferred to your new school! If you’re an Advisor, this also holds true for students transferring to your school or entering high school from middle school. If you need step by step instructions, they are available on our Account and Roster Management FAQ page!
