Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan

The life of Anne Sullivan and Helen Keller is fascinating.
Both are an example of courage
a model to the idea of teaching and learning in spite of our own limits.
You can visit links I´ve found interesting about them here.
Enjoy them!

What? Me? A Racist?

This is the link to an interesting comic in English.
It´s got different stories, all of them related to Human Rights.
Suggested activity for my students:
Read some and choose one of them.
Do a powerpoint presentation including:
1. Interesting vocabulary.
2. Grammar you can learn or revise.
3. Main topic (racism, women discrimination, no tolerance...)
4. Human Right/s it deals with.
5. Connection with your real life:
"I´ve chosen this chapter becuase ...";
"I know someone who... ";
"I´ve experienced something similar when...";
"I know this is happening in my family/neighbourhood/school/city/country..."
