Students will become familiar with terms, arguments and case studies involving globalization. After using our text to explore relevant definitions and initial pro-con arguments, students will rotate between five stations: (1) watch and respond to a Crash Course video in EdPuzzle, (2) investigate food security & trade issues with a small group white board flowchart, (3) access case studies online and respond to questions, (4) search out addition pro-con arguments online and (5) select a product to research and develop a script  for a fashion show that highlights the effects of globalization. The unit will conclude with a “globalization fashion show” and a pro-con debate on globalization.
