Inspire Descriptor:

How many countries are there in the world? How many can you name? And how much do you know about each country? How much is there still to learn? In this inspire session, we will look at 6 different countries from around the world that have a really interesting history and that you may have never heard of. We'll also look at some interesting things currently happening around the world.

Here are some ideas, but I'm keen to incorporate your own knowledge, interests and contributions:

North America: Haiti/Dominican Republic. Cuba

South America: Galapagos. Protests in Ecuador. Humanitarian Crisis in Venezuela.

Asia: North Korea. HongKong.

Africa: Rwanda? Morocco? Boko Haram?

Europe: Balkan conflict? Right-wing nationalism? Migration-issues?

Pacific: Samoa

Note: Both Inspire sessions on Tuesday and Thursday will have the same core idea, but may end up running in different directions depending on students' interest and contribution.
