Sites for Teaching About the Current Financial Crisis?

| 1 Comment

I've got to hand it to Larry Ferlazzo, a social studies and English teacher at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento, who is seeking Web resources so that he can effectively explain the current financial crisis to his English-language learners. He can't find sites accessible to ELLs, but he's determined to educate himself and make sure his students aren't left out of the loop in learning about economic issues.

That's a good attitude for a teacher--not to leave ELLs out of the loop.
