More Info On Swine Flu (Including Student-Created Resources)


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.
