The World News Crossword (August 20th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 20th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 20th, 2017) is a simple resource made up of a crossword (with answers) based on last week's news events - and THREE bonus crosswords. This week's bonus puzzles focus on Argentina, China, and New Zealand. The World News Crossword is reasonably simple to complete because its purpose is to engage students with their world and some of the many events that affect them. A two-week-old wildfire in Greenland. A terror attack in Barcelona. A baby dolphin killed because of tourists' curiosity. Venezuela went from bad to worse. 3000 Syrians returned home from Lebanon. Saudi Arabia negotiated to rebuild Iraq's cities. The US president used Twitter, again. Floods affected millions of people in India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. A tortoise escaped in Japan. But it's less about what happened last week than why and hopefully, if students work in groups to solve these puzzles, they'll chat among themselves about the stories in the puzzle. Why did Rwandans vote their president back for a third term? Why should Zimbabwe's Grace Mugabe escape prosecution for assaulting a model in a hotel in South Africa? Why is the US investigating China's intellectual property policies? And what's so wrong with an Australian politician holding dual-citizenship?

SHIC Level 0 - The Giving Game

SHIC Level 0 - The Giving Game

This is an introduction to high-impact charity, and is the best way to start the SHIC program. After learning about several charities, you and your group are tasked with selecting the one you deem as having the biggest impact. The difficulties involved in this task will demonstrate that you can’t necessarily rely on your intuition to choose a charity, and will give your group a taste of how evidence and analysis can, and should, be used to select a charity. This is a great stand-alone level and an excellent introduction to high-impact charity.
