Product Description
This is a bundle of 3 highly animated, power point presentations on Heroes for the Blind – Louis Braille, Ann Sullivan and Helen Keller. The total number of slides is 60. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

Power Point #1 is entitled the Famous Educators for the Blind - Louis Braille and contains 17 slides and covers the following:

Louis Braille was born on January 4, 1809 in Coupvray, France. Braille was blinded by an accident when he was three in an accident that occurred while he was playing with tools in his father’s harness shop.

Educated at the National Institute for Blind Youth in Paris, Braille invented a system of raised dots that enables blind people to read and write. Although his system was in limited use during his lifetime, the practicality as well as simple elegance of his braille system was increasingly recognized.

Today, in virtually every language throughout the world, it is the standard form of writing and reading used by blind persons. If a blind child is taught braille skills with the same sense of importance that is rightly attached to the teaching of print skills to sighted children, he or she will grow up able to read at speeds comparable to print readers, a life skill of inestimable value.

Power Point #2 is entitled the Famous Educators – Ann Sullivan and contains 20 slides and covers the following:

Anne Sullivan was a teacher who taught Helen Keller, a blind and deaf child, how to communicate and read Braille. At only 20 years of age, Sullivan showed great maturity and ingenuity in teaching Keller and worked hard with her pupil, bringing both women much acclaim. Sullivan even helped Keller write her autobiography.

Her early days were filled with sadness, poverty, health problems, death and abandonment by her father. Sullivan learned about schools for the blind and became determined to get an education to escape poverty. She lacked social graces, which put her at odds with her peers. Humiliated by her own ignorance, she was tremendously bright and determined to excel.

The school’s director. Michael Anagnos, introduced her to the Helen Keller family. Sullivan performed brilliantly, bringing Keller out of her shell resulting in Keller becoming the first deaf-blind person to graduate from college. Their success was embraced by many and her fame spread and the two created a remarkable bond that lasted the rest of their lives.

Power Point #3 is entitled the Famous Americans - Helen Keller and contains 23 slides and covers the following:

Helen Adams Keller was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Helen Keller overcame the adversity of being blind and deaf to become one of the 20th century's leading humanitarians, as well as co-founder of the ACLU.

The story of how Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film “The Miracle Worker”.

During her lifetime, she received many honors in recognition of her accomplishments, including the Theodore Roosevelt Distinguished Service Medal in 1936, the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1964, and election to the Women's Hall of Fame in 1965. She also received honorary doctoral degrees from Temple University and Harvard University and from the universities of Glasgow, Scotland; Berlin, Germany; Delhi, India; and Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. Additionally, she was named an Honorary Fellow of the Educational Institute of Scotland.

Keller died in her sleep on June 1, 1968, just a few weeks before her 88th birthday. During her remarkable life, Keller stood as a powerful example of how determination, hard work, and imagination can allow an individual to triumph over adversity. By overcoming difficult conditions with a great deal of persistence, she grew into a respected and world-renowned activist who labored for the betterment of others.
