September 2007 - Issue No. #66

September has come and, for many of us, it’s back to school! Key articles in our fall issue focus on (1) a summer English camp designed to promote intercultural understanding between Korean and Japanese high school students and (2) an environmental appeal to EFL publishers to reduce junk mail. In 2009, Japan will introduce a new citizen-based “lay judge” jury system. To prepare for this, we present here a special section on “Teaching about Great World Trials” with classroom ideas to help raise students’ legal awareness as they learn about the trials of famous historical figures such as Socrates, Galileo, Joan of Arc, Alfred Dreyfus, Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. Also included are previews of the upcoming GALE (Gender Awareness), PGL VI (Peace as a Global Language), Global Festa and JALT conferences plus lots of global education news, resources and information.
