WorldView Lesson Plan on Mt Chomolungma Subscribers to Global TeachNet recently received the National Peace Corps Association's quarterly WorldView magazine in the mail and Global TeachNet newsletter by email. We would like to remind our readers that we both publish in the newsletter and post online a lesson plan to accompany each issue of WorldView. For those who have already downloaded the lesson, please note that we added some new information to the online version of the lesson plan that accompanies the WorldView article "Mt Chomolungma: a plea to call Everest by its local and original name." Thanks to Global TeachNet reader John Jacoby for providing additional insights into the meaning of the many names of the mountain and the people who have named it.
