Bullying, Boxes  and Billionaires
This month's resources seek to educate, inspire and inform.  The Pre-Intermediate Instant Lesson 'Thinking Outside The Box' looks at a simple but very effective invention, a solar powered cooker, that could improve the lives of billions of people. A Norwegian inventor has come up with a cardboard box cooker that only costs $6 to produce. Students are asked to come up with their own ideas for inventions to help humanity.

Bullying remains a problem for many schools but the latest form of bullying, cyberbullying, is a 24-hour-a-day problem. "With electronic forms of bullying there is no refuge. It is 24/7. It is always online. Even if you turn off your computer you know that web page is up, or that people are spreading this rumor about you. The relentlessness of it is very psychologically devastating." (Upper-Intermediate Instant Lesson: 'Under Attack') Learn more about cyberbullying, how to deal with it and also enter our 'Tips To Stop Bullying' Competition (see below for details).

Warren Buffet, the second richest man in the world, plays bridge with Bill Gates, drinks five cans of Cherry Coke a day, plays the ukulele and and talks to students about business. Elementary students can practice reading personal information about someone, using the present simple tense and asking and answering questions.  (Elementary Instant Lesson: 'Are You A Billionaire?')

We all know, by now, what Swine Flu is but what is influenza?  Our newest weekly warmer ('Find Your Other Half - Influenza') helps intermediate and above students practice their speaking and listening and learn some basic facts about influenza.

This month's Point of Interest
This month's Point of Interest is from 'Under Attack', an Upper Intermediate Instant Lesson  on cyberbullying.

'Halligan encourages bystanders, students who are aware of cyberbullying and choose to do nothing, to use the power of peer pressure to stop it.

His message to parents is to speak to their children.

"Make sure you turn that computer off, often, and have a sit-down conversation about what is going on in their lives. Create as much opportunity as you can to allow them to express their feelings and what they might be going through."'Thomson Reuters 2009
