GLOBAL ISSUES IN LANGUAGE
EDUCATION NEWSLETTER
Fall 2001 - Issue No. #44

All of us were shocked by the September 11 terrorist attacks in the US. Both my sisters had close calls. One works in Manhattan and, by chance, was away from her World Trade Center office when the planes crashed. The other took one of the flights hijacked by the terrorists (American Airlines, Boston to LA) but, by chance, took it the night before. Now language teachers and students round the world are viewing with alarm the current anthrax scare and the "war" on the Taliban. This fall newsletter includes articles by language teachers about September 11th and the bombing of Afghanistan, a list of resources for teaching about terrorism and a preview of global issue presentations at the JALT-PAC3 conference. Also included are a Vietnam charity trip, a Lebanese peace education institute, educating for citizenship, books on youth activism and a list of global calendars for 2002.
