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.
