The Institute for Humane Education

February 10th, 2010 by Dave · No Comments

The Institute for Humane Education has a great collection of activities, many of which could be used with English language learners. Most of them are aimed at younger learners, but many could also be used effectively with adults. I haven’t yet had a chance to go through the whole site, but I took a look at the environmental preservation activities. There are a couple of activities that ask students to discuss what they would do in an imagined future (Spaceship Earth and Sustainer) and another neat one that looks at the simulated plastic contents of a whale’s stomach. I might use this one myself in a unit I’m working on about plastic and ocean pollution.

In addition, they have activities on human rights, animal protection, and culture. They even have a collection of quick activities that can be done in 5 to 15 minutes.

Finally, check out the Humane Connection blog, a place where the folks at the Institute share ideas and new teacher resources.
