Well, its been a long year and we are finally reaching the final unit and last summative for Individuals and Societies course. Yay! Celebrate the small successes!
For this final unit, you will once again investigate "Global Issues"--just as you have since Grade 6 (those of you that have been on this same 3-year journey).
This year, you will be investigating the new Global Goals: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the U.N. and a community of committed citizens and NGOs (nongovernmental organizations) that are dedicated to making the world a much more verdant, peaceful and sustainable place for generations to come...
For today, you will begin exploring the 17 SDGs and will select 1 of these goals for your investigation.
On Monday, you will begin the summative investigation by also selecting an NGO that is working towards achieving the SDG you selected.
