Summer 2002 - Issue No. #47

This summer newsletter goes to press on the one-year anniversary of the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks in the US, a perfect chance for us to think carefully about our duty as global educators to teach for peace and justice. Our featured topic this issue is "teaching against prejudice" with a story about human rights from the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and tips on teaching about discrimination in English discussion classes in Japan. Our main article is on NILE (Newspapers In Language Education) on how studying current events through newspapers can promote student reading skills and global awareness. Also included are a class activity about charity Internet websites, a report on the IATEFL 2002 conference in England and a list of reference books on global themes.
