    Globalization 101 - 1 views

      Great resource on globalization. I used the issues briefs for my unit plan. They have different collections of articles about various global issues. Supposedly they are academic and opinionless, which is nice because it gives more balance than most of the other stuff you get. :-)
      Oh. But the lesson plans are for college level so . . . I wouldn't use those. Or you could adapt them. :-)
