Our summer newsletter comes out on the 60th anniversary of World War II (1945-2005) and in the wake of the July G-8 summit. Included here are sections on teaching about WWII as well as reports on Live 8 and the Make Poverty History campaign. Articles focus on teaching global issues using photojournalism websites, how political cartoons can promote language skills, political awareness and intercultural understanding plus a report on the Asian tsunami by an EFL teacher who did volunteer relief work in Thailand. Also included are a report on TESOL 2005 plus books on global themes. Have a great summer!
