Everyday Edit: Anne Sullivan

Here, on a Monday morning after a fabulously spring-like weekend, which I passed in the charming Westchester County town of Katonah, New York, is an Everyday Edit worksheet on Anne Sullivan, Helen Keller’s legendary teacher.

Incidentally, if you or your students like using these short exercises in your classroom, the good people at Education World generously distribute, at no cost, a yearlong supply of these Everyday Edit worksheets. At my current posting, I am required to use a scripted curriculum, so I cannot employ these in my classroom. In the past, however, I’ve used them regularly to good effect with struggling learners. In fact, I have placed them in lesson plans where appropriate.

Cultural Literacy: Marian Anderson

It’s Monday again, the first of Women’s History Month 2019, which Mark’s Text Terminal will observe with Women’s History-related posts for the entire month. Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Marian Anderson. I am happy to report that the authors, even in the squib that serves as a reading for this worksheet, mentioned the ugly racist indignity Ms. Anderson suffered in 1941.
