Issue # 100
Overview of the GILE newsletter (1990-2016)
The 100th edition of our quarterly Global Issues in Language Education Newsletter features: (1) a description by Charles Kowalski of a U.S. presidential election simulation designed for EFL students, (2) an article by J.J. Wilson explaining 12 different ways that you can bring global issues into your classroom and (3) a report by Richard Miller on the PGL 2016 conference in Kenya and a unique PGL project to bring computers to a Nairobi slum school. Our special theme for this issue is Teaching about the Rio Olympics complete with ideas, activities and resources to help you teach about the Summer Olympics in Brazil. Other newsletter features include conference reports on IATEFL 2016 (UK) and on Pan-SIG 2016 (Okinawa). We wrap up this issue with a call for your messages to celebrate our 100th newsletter as well as a round-up of all the latest global education news. Have a great summer and enjoy the Olympics!
