July 2001 - Issue No. #43

Here, finally, is our summer newsletter! The focus this issue is on human rights and human rights education. This features a "human rights squares" classroom activity, a report on teaching about human rights in Greece and a simplified version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for your students. Also included are a report on the TESOL 2001 conference in St. Louis, USA, a development education simulation on world trade, announcements of summer global education teacher training courses, and a list of global issue reference books. For our paying newsletter subscribers, we've included with this issue a copy of the "2001 United Nations Peace Calendar". Other readers who'd like a copy of this are welcome to order one (see ordering information on page 23).
