1) Review of how a human geographer can use the "Soda Pop" map to analyse migration patterns. Here's a link to the map: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_NLOcDtt0kJA/TIkbvmqtWaI/AAAAAAAABTI/GR6lF6RQWU4/s1600/Pop_vs_Soda.gif
2) Listened to a podcast about Dual-Language Schools: http://www.theworld.org/2010/09/08/learning-in-two-languages/
3) Debated whether immigrants to the USA should have to learn English.
4) Used Google Translate to read news in German and Korean.
Here's the podcast to listen to and summarize for homework: http://www.theworld.org/2010/08/20/a-persian-insult-an-inuit-dialect-and-urdu-directions/ (20 minute program -- spend about ten minutes writing brief three or four sentence summaries of each part of the program).
