MS History 3 - Global Studies Syllabus

Course Description

With more than seven billion people in the world today, there are a lot of stories to write about. Researching and writing these stories will be your assignment as a new reporter for the Global News Network. In this course, all the stories are big stories. Human rights, the environment, global security, and international economic systems are all part of your beat. The stories also have real human interest because they deal with peoples' customs, cultures, and how they interact. Your job will be to research the facts and present them with clarity and context. Your job will also involve identifying real global problems and then, suggesting well-developed solutions. This is a course that makes you think. The stories are current and compelling. They need to be told, and the right person to tell them is you. 

This is a yearlong course consisting of 10 units.
