June 2006 - Issue No. #61

Our 2006 summer newsletter comes out as teachers in Japan gear up for the end of the spring semester, for final exams, for the end of the rainy season and for a steaming summer of "mushi-atsui" (hot-and-humid) weather. Our main articles in this edition focus on (1) creative activities for practicing language skills while promoting student awareness of animal issues; (2) the first part of a step-by-step guide on how to organize overseas eco-tours, and (3) a task-based EFL teaching unit designed around international prizes for global citizenship. Also included are a report on global education presentations at the spring TESOL 2006 conference in Florida, a list of books on world countries and issues, and lots of global education news, events and information. Have a great summer!
