Country of the Month: Russia

Coupled with the Special Feature on the 2014 Winter Olympics, Russia had the proud honor of being February’s Country of the Month.  It was a perfect chance to combine current events, history, and geography.  Coming from the US, Russia sometimes gets a bad wrap.  I was curious to see if anyone at my school would protest Russia’s inclusion on our English Board.  However, I’m happy to report that I received no negative comments regarding my choice.  The students were able to connect the Olympics and Sochi and Russia with just a simple shuffle to the right!
