Vale Muhammad Ali

Vale Muhammad Ali
Muhammad Ali, one of boxing's titans and a hero worldwide, passed away on Saturday after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.

He shocked the boxing world with his unorthodox style and early career takedown of Sonny Liston for the World Heavy Weight Championship and he shocked much of America when he changed his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali and joined the Nation of Islam to further his fight for civil-rights.…

How can you engage students in higher order thinking?

Teach about ANZAC Day with these Videos on ClickView
On the 25th of April the stirring sound of the Last Post will sound out across Australia and New Zealand as we remember the men and women who have served their country in conflicts since 1901. ANZAC day is a time for sombre commemoration of the sacrifices of both servicemen and women and anybody touched by the experience of war. It is also a day for reflection and consideration about what war means for a nation and a society, the myths and legends we create and whether these are the proper way to commemorate the experience…
