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.
