Creating World Issues PowerPoint Books is a project oriented to helping students learn about world issues that often are missing from textbooks or at least missing in terms of current details. These world issues (from lack of clean water to today’s piracy) are important to anyone who wants to be an informed citizen and understand the news.
During this project students create booklets to share with other students. The assignments direct students to become knowledgeable about the problem, find at least two case studies, and explore the pros and cons of various solutions.
Higher level thinking skills are expanded along with research, writing, visual presentations, and computer skills.
The materials include notes for the teacher, world issues assignment chart, student choices page and a student packet. The student packet includes an overview, assignments, six small turn in rubrics, and a final rubric.
Using this project helps your students become much more aware of the world and some of the important issues.
