I have some additional resources I’ve added to The Best Sites For Learning About The Swine Flu Outbreak, including some simple multilingual resources quickly created by some of my ESL students:
The Swine Epidemic Grows is a series of photos from The Sacramento Bee.
Breaking News English has a resource that provides audio support for the text. It’s called Swine Flu Deaths Expected To Rise.
Swine Flu: The Affected Nations is from The Guardian.
Flowing Data has a good graphic showing how Viruses Can Transform Into Swine Flu.
There’s been a lot of talk about the worldwide Influenza Pandemic in 1918. Here are some accessible resources related to that time:
The Baltimore Sun has a multimedia page on the 1918 Influenza Pandemic.
Lessons From A Past Pandemic is an audio slideshow from The New York Times.
The Guardian has an interactive showing how the pandemic affected London.
Here’s a map and timeline of the 1918 Pandemic from PBS.
Here are links to some multilingual student-created resources:
Hmong/English by Kao
English/Spanish by Edgar
English/Spanish by Esteban
English/Marshallese by Calynda
We really didn’t have much time, and will be making more later in the week. Students will be sharing them with their families and other students.
