Leon Lynn from Rethinking Schools here. We’re proud to announce that our completely redesigned website is up and running!

To kick off our redesigned Just For Fun section, we’re offering an interactive map game that challenges you to drag and drop the correct names on every Middle Eastern country, from Western Sahara to Kyrgyzstan. (Need a little help? Don’t worry, the Just For Fun page also has links to large and small PDF maps of the Middle East with all country names in place ? perfect for downloading and printing for classroom use.)

There are a few bugs we are still dealing with: for example, some of the site’s graphics may not render correctly on some older Netscape browsers. But we’re working on it. (And you can always upgrade to a newer browser for free at

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to visit the new site and let us know what you think, good or bad. Please send your comments to:
