Welcome to Issue 61 of the Secondary Magazine. 


From the editor
Asking ourselves questions about learning atmospheres can help us to think of changes that will make a big difference.
It's in the News!
The World Cup
This resource provides students with data about some of the teams competing in the competition and invites the students to use the data to offer a reasoned argument predicting who they think will win the famous trophy. Data given includes the FIFA world ranking of international teams, data from the International Federation of Football History and Statistics about the strongest team coaches and national leagues, and figures from previous head-to-head matches between some of the top teams.
