How can I make a difference in the world today, tomorrow...forever? Global Issues in Action is an inquiry-based course centered around six core ideas/concepts of Globalization: Population and Migration, Standards of Living, Culture Human/Civil Rights, and Environment. Using an inquiry-based process and case study approach, spanning a variety of specific regions and time periods, students will take an active role in identifying the scope of big issues, culminating in an inquiry project that focuses on real-world challenges; all this while developing the skills necessary for further success in high school social studies.
