Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).



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.
