Class Experience

Students will be able to explain who Helen Keller was, how she lived and what amazing things she was able to accomplish in her lifetime.
I am currently a 1st grade teacher with a minor in history.  History intrigues me and inspires me to want to share it with the world!  People who have helped to shape the world, as we know it today, should never be forgotten.
Homework is optional.  Some homework options are as follows:  Reading books about Helen Keller.  Write a short summary about who Helen Keller was, the life that she lived and all that she was able to accomplish.
I will be reading the book "A Girl Named Helen Keller" by Margo Lundell. It is not required for you to purchase this book for the class. This book is currently available on Amazon for $15.98, if you would like to purchase it.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed throughout the lesson by observation and discussion.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will be discussing what it may have been (or might be) like to be blind, deaf or both.
