Puerto Rico

Writing its own story: An island of change

Puerto Rico is the world’s oldest colony, acquired from Spain in the Spanish-American War in 1898. We dig into the history of this US territory and its complicated and evolving relationship with the mainland.

Learning objectives

Students evidence first hand the contrast of governance and representation, learning about how Puerto Rican inhabitants are US Citizens who are taxed and can serve in the military but have no representation or voting power in the federal government.
We delve into how food and music interweave on the island, coupled with the use of empathic interviewing techniques to learn how stories weave together to form the complex tapestry of narratives in these places.
