Today’s Distance Learning Lesson: Globalization!
What does it mean to be a part of a global community? Why should we care about events that are happening on the other side of the planet?
If there’s one thing the pandemic has taught us, it’s that everyone around the world is connected. Borders mean nothing to a virus that is intent on spreading to as many people as possible. But how does globalization affect us in other ways?
By learning about the economical, political, environmental, and cultural impact of globalization, young people can be better equipped to make decisions that are beneficial for the world as a whole, not simply for one’s immediate group or surroundings. We can start to see larger pictures and repeating patterns. We can work toward raising the quality of life for everyone.
Globalization: Why We Care About Faraway Events by Carla Mooney encourages kids to think about how to tackle big problems with actionable solutions. Critical and creative thinking is a huge part of being a citizen of the globe, and the research activities in this book are designed to promote those skills and engage with a deeper level of understanding.
