Welcome to Global Studies! 

This year we will be focusing on geography and culture with an anthropological lens. Students will spend a large potion of the year working on a country project for a country of their choosing. They will take a break to do their History Day project mid-year and return to global studies after that.

Each week students will be assigned a podcast and an article- these will be assigned on Monday and due on Friday. During History Day we will stop doing these two assignments.

 

If you are interested in some enrichment resources here are a list of podcasts that support the learning we are doing in class:

 

A History of the World in 100 Objects (BBC- The British Museum)

In Our Time (BBC 4)
