Four pages of fill in the blank and short essay questions about the life of Helen Keller, including answer key. Questions ask biographical facts about Helen's life and times, as well as ask students to imagine what it might be like to be deaf and or blind, how things have changed for blind and deaf children since Helen's childhood, and in what ways they could be friends with children who are blind and or deaf.
Suitable for review and provoking insight after studying Helen Keller, reading a biography or fictional account of her life, or watching a movie about her life. Students may need to supplement the book or movie they have read or watched with some research.
Opportunities for discussion with students and as a springboard for further exploring what it is like to be blind and or deaf in the past and today, and how friendships between disabled and nondisabled can be nurtured.
Written as follow up assessment and discussion material for my homeschooled grade 4 son after reading a biography and watching The Miracle Worker.
