Description

Introduce the life and historical significance of Helen Keller with our Helen Keller Lesson Plan.  This interactive lesson also engages the imagination and empathy of students as they consider what it would be like to be blind, deaf and unable to communicate.

Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction Sample:

  1. Pair students. (Students should be seated during this exercise.) Tell both students to close their eyes. Instruct students to tell each other their favorite color, number, etc., without talking to their partner.
  2. Give students about five minutes to brainstorm ideas to communicate with their partner. The room should be completely silent.
  3. After five minutes, ask students to discuss the experience. Why was it difficult? What would it be like if they were deaf and blind and were unable to
    talk? How would they communicate?
  4. Allow for responses and discussion. Introduce Helen Keller.
  5. Distribute Helen Keller content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Save the final question for lesson closing. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
