Today you will begin exploring various global issues and what they are about.
In small table groups, you will explore what a global issue is and make a list of possible global issues. We will use one example in class for discussion purposes and to provide historical context. Afterwards, you will be asked to think about a global issue you are most interested in researching for an upcoming formative assessment.

You will eventually need to answer the following question by writing an essay: Explain the causes/contributing factors (at least 2) of a modern global issue.
