I Am Helen Keller/I Am Alexander Graham Bell

Mon, Aug 15 6:00 A.M. NHPBS      

I am Helen Keller Yadina becomes increasingly frustrated as she tries to read a book to Dr. Zoom, but has to keep stopping since it has words in it she doesn't know. Learning to read is SO hard - she feels like she'll never be able to do it. Xavier knows just what his little sister needs to the Secret Museum! Our heroes travel back in time to meet someone truly incredible, who had to overcome a whole lot to learn how to do just about anything: Helen Keller. Watching Helen first learn what words are, then how to read, and finally how to speak, all in her own unique way, inspires Yadina to go home and try to find her own way to learn to read. Because, as Helen shows her, there are many different ways to learn. Curriculum: "There are many different ways to learn" I am Alexander Graham Bell Losing his voice is frustrating enough for Brad, but it doesn't help matters when Xavier and Yadina do all the talking for him instead of trying to listen. To the Secret Museum! Brad takes his friends back in time to meet someone who worked his whole life to help people be heard: Alexander Graham Bell. Watching Alexander first help his deaf mother, then his whole school of deaf students, have their voices heard in any way they can, helps Xavier and Yadina realize that they should've tried harder to listen to Brad, even when they couldn't technically hear him. It's important to listen to everyone. Curriculum: "Listen to everyone."
