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).

Is it better to make goods here or there?


Students will investigate the Silk Road to learn about the beginnings of globalization, and study the process of globalization, global trade, comparative advantage, design, sourcing, manufacturing and distribution. Students will consider if globalization results in more positive or negative contributions to our communities and society as whole.

Learning Targets: 
Define globalization, its positives and its controversies.
Interpret visual and print sources in order to examine the impacts of globalization
Cite textual evidence from visual and print sources to create an argument for if globalization is a more positive or negative development
