EDSITEment is a partnership among the National Endowment for the Humanities, Verizon Foundation, and the National Trust for the Humanities and is a member of the Thinkfinity Consortium of premier educational websites. EDSITEment offers rich resources for teachers, students, and parents in search of high-quality material on the Internet in literature and language arts, foreign languages, art and culture, and history and social studies.
Just one example from EDSITEment’s World Language lessons is La Familia for grades K-2. This unit on Spanish language and culture focuses on the family and keeps the lessons simple and age-appropriate. Students will learn about Spanish families and gain a preliminary knowledge of the Spanish language, learning the Spanish names for various family members.
