We will be studying World Geography as well as current world issues. We will use Junior Scholastic to dive deep into current world issues. Questions we will ask ourselves as we study these issues:
1.) Peoples and Beliefs: What groups of people are involved? What do they believe? What do they want?
2.) Choices: How do these individuals or groups go about getting what they want? What worked or didn’t work, and why?
3.) Lessons Learned: What can be learned from choices of individuals or groups?
4.) Connections: What does it remind you of? What does it mean to you?
-Within each region, we will be doing a case study on a country or countries with different types of democracies: emerging, stable, or failed.
Examples: South Africa & Northern Ireland
Curriculum: We use a variety of resources for our Social Studies curriculum including: History Alive, Facing History and Ourselves, Teaching Tolerance, Junior Scholastic, Nystrom Desk Atlas
All assignments, homework and projects will be found on Google Classroom.
