This is an activity to do with students while reading The Miracle Worker. This activity asks you to write a letter to Dr. Chisholm in Baltimore, where the school for the blind is located in the book. The student will be writing to Dr. Chisholm, asking for a teacher that can teach Helen Keller. This can be a pre-reading activity or it can follow the reading. Have students get into character and really think of how to write a letter asking for help with a blind and deaf student. Have students think of the rewards and possible challenges that may come with the job.
