Abstract: This session demonstrates the goals of Project SSTARC (Social Studies Through Authentic and Relevant Content), a two-year collaborative project between the Centers for Bilingual Studies and Mexican American Studies at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and local school districts. This project provided an opportunity for local teachers to gain deeper knowledge of local and regional history, create relevant social studies content for their DL students in both English and Spanish, disseminate the content to enrich the schooling experience of DL students, and expose DL students to authentic and relevant humanities content early on in their lives.
