Since many of our students, particularly my Spanish-speaking English Language Learners, visit Los Angeles frequently, I thought it might be useful to put together a quick list of accessible sites for leaning about L.A.
Here are my choices for The Best Sites To Learn About Los Angeles (and are accessible to ELL’s):
EL Civics has a Los Angeles Photo Tour and Lesson.
Lingual Net has a video “Los Angeles: My City” designed for ELL’s.
Los Angeles: Portrait Of A City is a TIME Magazine slideshow.
Travelego has a short video called About Los Angeles.
Los Angeles Landmarks is the title of a National Geographic slideshow.
Los Angeles: 10 Things to Do in 24 Hours is a slideshow and article from TIME Magazine.
PopuLAtion is a video series from the L.A. Times featuring some of the more eccentric characters in the city. If you click on “Browse” you can access all of them.
FACT Monster has some relatively accessible text giving basic information about the city.
The Los Angeles Times has published a series of photos of the city taken from the Goodyear Blimp.
Then and Now: Southern California is a good slideshow from CNN.
Watch L.A. sprawl develop:
Feedback is always welcome.
