As regular readers know, in addition to teaching English to ELLs, I always teach a Social Studies class to them, too. This year, I’m teaching Geography to a multi-level class, and am using many of the resources at The Best Geography Sites For Beginning & Intermediate English Language Learners.
One of those resources links is to another list, The Best Sites For Learning About Mexico, Central & South America. That post has a number of Brazil-related links. However, I’m doing something a little different this year and teaching a much more advanced Geography curriculum to a number of my students, and right now we’re studying Brazil. As part of that unit, I decided to create a supplemental list to the Brazil links on that other post.
I’m also trying to find a class in Brazil that might be interested in exchanging a few messages over the Web with my students. If you’re a teacher in Brazil and are interested, please let me known.
Here is a beginning list of The Best Sites For Learning About Brazil:
Here is a video you might not be able to view in an RSS Reader:
Here’s a YouTube version of the same video:
The BBC has a collection of Brazil videos.
Pickup Soccer in Brazil Has an Allure All Its Own is from The New York Times.
World Cup 2014: Brazil’s stadiums – interactive is from The Guardian.
Here’s a great Prezi created by my talented colleague Elisabeth Johnson. Bear in mind her comment: “I created a Prezi to introduce Brazil because I don’t think our kids realize how prevalent it is in pop culture. I will warn you that I would probably only show the first minute or so of the “beautiful” video with Snoop Dogg and Pharrell as there are lots of Tanga bikini shots after that.”
