Summary: This story is a favorite of mine because it delves into the life of Helen Keller and the accomplishments and the hurdles that she went through. Her teacher, Anne Sullivan took Helen to places that she would never have had the opportunity to go, but despite her blindness and deafness, she inspired other people in her shoes to succeed in life and "take the bull by the horns". Personal: I liked this story because it recommits my mind into pursuing my dreams like Helen did, and to not let anything stand in my way. Classroom Extention: 1. I would have the students go through the day trying to succeed in class with a blindfold over their eyes. This way, they can understand what a blind person goes through every day. They would feel the raised bumps of braille and then write in their journals what was tough for them to do. 2. If Helen Keller was alive today, I would have the class write letters to her, asking her different questions and what they thought about her life and what accomplishments she did that wowed them.
