Here’s What My ELL Students Are Reading & Writing About Columbus


We’re learning about Christopher Columbus in my ELL U.S. History class, and Columbus Day is coming up in the United States (you can see many of the resources we’re using at The Best Online Resources About Christopher Columbus).

In our culminating project, students will be reading Columbus Day: Some Love It, Others Not So Much, an article from Learning English – Voice of America (it also provides audio support for the text).

They then will respond to this prompt, which includes limited paragraph frames (you download the entire document here).

Let me know if you have suggestions on how I can make it better!
