World's Largest Lesson!
Night Of A Thousand Dinners 2004
What is the World's Largest Lesson?
It is an attempt to get as many teachers and students from around the globe to take an English-To-Go.com Instant Lesson on the topic of Landmines during a particular time.
There have been three World's Largest Lessons, in 2001, 2002 and 2003. Hundreds of thousands of students of all ages in more than 200 countries have participated.
The World's Largest Lesson educates people about landmines.
The continued widespread use of these antipersonnel landmines creates a situation where thousands of people will continue to be killed and maimed in years to come. Landmines are unique weapons that reach into the future to kill civilians years after the conflict that they were used for is over.
Students from any subject area can participate, including English, Geography, History or Social Studies students.

Feedback from our partner Adopt-A-Minefield is extremely positive. We have helped to increase awareness of this support group's efforts and the continuing campaign to raise funds for mine clearance and survivor assistance. By contributing as little as $2 people can become involved with the worldwide effort to clear landmines.

really loved this opportunity. I teach third year university students (English
major). It's a sad topic but very interesting. It really provoked a lot of reactions
from the students and a lot of conversation and research for a group discussion."
