World Refugee Day 

As part of an interdisciplinary school project on the Syrian refugee crisis a few weeks ago, teams of students in this B1 class read a number of personal stories taken from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees website (www.unhcr.org), summarised their background, rewrote the current situation in their own words, and analysed each story to create a realistic alternative for each of them. In this way, the readers of these posters on display were invited to choose one of the options and check the answer, encouraging powerful critical thinking that should hopefully contribute to solve this and other similar crises — those very same ones we unfortunately seem unable to cope with at present — in the very, very near future.
