Global issues curriculum
When you watch the news or read about current events in class, you may think, “Why do I need to know what’s happening in the world?” Is it possible that parts of your life could be connected to the life of, say, a doctor at a hospital in Uganda, or to a rainforest in Brazil, or to the economy in India? Making Connections gives you the opportunity to learn about global issues, to see how they connect to your own life, and to identify positive contributions you can make to your community and the world.
