Hello and welcome! I look forward to learning about and exploring the world with you this year. We will be taking a journey through many amazing places on this magnificent planet. By the end of the year, you will have a much better understanding and appreciation of the world you live in. We will also connect this understanding to real world issues including climate change, homelessness, racism, conflicts between various groups, income inequality, warfare, and globalization. Throughout the year, you will also complete projects, connect course concepts to your own life and community, and develop critical thinking and discussion skills.
