While I’m gone from the classroom for a couple of days next week, students will be doing a project on the artist Diego Rivera. This morning I tooka few minutes to pull together a quick “The Best…” list for them to review today as an introduction to his life. They’ll go through these sites while we’re in the computer lab later today.
Here are my picks for The Best Sites To Learn About Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo (and are accessible to English Language Learners):

One more slideshow of his works.
A short biography of Rivera from Fact Monster.
