Podcast: Columbus Day

Does Columbus Deserve an Annual Parade?

Students around the world are taught about the explorations of Christopher Columbus. What they learn about this historic figure varies from country to country. Are traditional views of Columbus beginning to change?

This podcast features a reading from ESL Library’s Holidays & Events lesson plan on Columbus Day. In this lesson, students read a short bio about Columbus and discuss some of the reasons why this explorer may not deserve the credit he often gets.

To see the full transcript and use the ready-made lesson plan in class, log in to ESL Library and choose our Holidays & Events section. We also have a Famous People lesson about Christopher Columbus.
