Against the Odds


Global Issues Poll

How well did your Global Issues research go today?


Content Outline


Becoming an Activist


For this class, part of your final grade will include a major project.  This project will be worked on in groups of 2 or 3 and presented at different points throughout the class, depending which area of the world your issue pertains to. 

Points will be assessed according to the rubric provided.


You and your partners will pick a region we will be studying in this course and champion a global issue.  You must take a stance on the issue, put forth your point of view in the final project, as well as objective research to provide the back-story to your issue.  You also must come up with ways to help/solve the issue your chose. 

While you can use information we discuss in class to help guide your focus, you must come up with your own new case stories and resources for the project.


The final project will be displayed on a webpage you created.

(we will see if we can actually get funding to get it up and running!)

The webpage should include relevant images (to produce a reaction by your audience), a hook, and some back-story to grab the audience’s attention and make them not only want to stay on your webpage, but continue to read/view on!

The organization of the webpage will be up to your discretion, however you must include AT LEAST 10 reputable sources, cited properly, you consulted and 3 reputable agencies that are fighting to help your cause (allow direct links to those as well).  Don’t forget to place a small citation under any images you use!


You also will provide a space for people to discussion forum/blog about your issue with 3 strands of conversation to get the discussion going.


Finally, the last big portion of the project will be a digital story/documentary you create, at least 10 minutes in length, with appropriate images and music/audio to provide a glimpse as to why your issue is of global concern, concluding with what your group feels should be done about the issue.


Pick your group wisely; this is a major part of your grade in this course and you should chose people who also have the same point of view on the issue you will tackle. 

Only one group will be assigned to a particular topic in a particular region.

You may also chose to work alone on this project if you so chose.
