Who was Helen Keller? As we began our unit study on this remarkable woman and learn about her early life through the reading of The Miracle Worker, a play by William Gibson, I would like to start off discussions by having you explore The Helen Keller Kids Museum Online. This is a vast site with a wealth of information including images and videos, which will provide you with good background knowledge of Helen Keller and her amazing life’s journey. If anything else, it will show you what determination and will can do when faced with life’s greatest obstacles.
Please answer to the following two prompts:
1. When exploring the above website, what information has an impact on you? Why? Do not tell me about two things. I am looking for a response that shows effort and depth of thought, and one that shows you took time to go through the site.
2. Which do you think is a greater disability – the loss of sight or the loss of hearing? What severe problems does the loss of either faculty create? How could someone who has lost both senses learn about the world and become a literate adult?
