Fall 2002 - Issue No. #48

This late fall newsletter goes to press as the 2002 Nobel Prizes are being awarded. While the media in Japan have spotlighted the two Japanese prize winners (in Chemistry and Physics), not much coverage has been given to the far more important prize for peace. Here, then, we've included a special section on the Nobel Peace Prize with teaching ideas, classroom activities, educational resources and a complete list of winners. Our featured article this issue deals with international volunteer work by Japanese students in Asia. Make sure to read the powerful essay by an English major in Kyoto on her work with Habitat for Humanity. Also included are a report on the JALT 2002 conference, a Christmas story about prejudice and a list of global calendars for the year 2003.
