    This by Anastasia Khodakova, based at Tula State Univ. in Tula Oblast south of Moscow, a very interesting policy paper: http://www.isp.org.pl/uploads/filemanager/AnastasiaKhodakova1.pdf

    Here an article by Anastasia published by JALT in Japan in connection with GILE: https://www.jalt-publications.org/files/pdf-article/38.5tlt_sig5.pdf

    She also has a short article in the GISIG Newsletter Dec. 2017 pp. 55-56;Teaching global issues to teens in an engaging way https://tinyurl.com/yaf5xh2z

    A great poem to go with the theme of tolerance and universal humanity, as touched on by Anastasia and others is Adrian Mitchell, HUMAN BEINGS: https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/human-beings-16/ using poetry to teach tolerance
