In response to the news about how a lesson about illegal aliens was shared with 3rd grades students in a George public school, the developer, EdHelper.com, responded to our request to an interview about this matter:

Thank you for contacting edHelper about the immigration article.  We have received a lot of feedback on this article and the question that was discussed we felt was in poor judgment and has been removed from our website.  The main goal of the article was to teach comprehension and also that people need permission before going to another country.

edHelper has over 50 articles that tries to teach about immigration in the United States (http://edhelper.com/immigration.htm).


We find this statement a little vague in its explanation and we have emailed them with the following request:

I would like more information about this since I think your statement here does not address the main issue as to the sensitivity of this lesson. Can someone in your office contact me via email?

Thank you.



If we get a more detailed reply, we will share.

As Publish grows by offering content development for publishers, schools, teachers, students, and parents, we truly feel like we are doing the right thing, especially when we get reviews from actual users. Today, Publish (follow us on Twitter @PublishGroup got such a review for its work with Green Comma and AARTPACK on the Sonia Sotomayor Digital Lessons.


My Latino Voice says about the lessons:

“But these classroom-ready lessons aren’t the old click-print-and fill-in-the-blanks kind. They’re more like a Sotomayor Trivial Pursuit of sorts for the web. The lessons take key moments from the judge’s life – from her childhood to the historic confirmation – and turn those person details into questions in the areas of Social Studies, Reading and Language Arts, Math and Science in elementary, middle and high school.” Sotomayor’s diabetic condition, for example, makes up the Science questions.

Okay, so we know it’s for kids, teachers, and parents. But we love the clean design, and the game-like approach, and we’re sure everyone will want to use it, especially since the interactive lessons are free during Hispanic Heritage Month.”

Thank you so much, My Latino Voice! ¡Gracias mil!
