Current Global Issues

Current Global Issues 131 2 Credits

Not offered 16-17 In a world of increasing complexity and interdependence, this course aims to build a sense of global citizenship through the examination of both significant global issues and current events in their historical and cultural context. Students will use grade-level readings, media analysis, and geography skills as they examine power distribution, resource management and conflict resolution in case studies from around the world. Although "breaking news" will be incorporated into the course, this is not a current events course. Oral presentations, simulations, and individual research projects will assess student progress. Tests and quizzes will require the ability to recall information, to analyze events, and to predict outcomes.
