This graphic organizer is designed to introduce middle school students to the Enduring Issues of: power, conflict, scarcity, Human-Environmental Interaction, impact of technology, Impact of Cultural Diffusion, Belief Systems and Human Rights Violations.

Students will read the definition provided for each enduring issue and then put it into their own words.

For the Do Now: Students will think about what has changed and what has stayed the same between elementary and middle school. The following class discussion will help students understand the concept of enduring issues as well as continuity and change. Students will then be asked to come up with school-related enduring issues.

The students will then answer questions in which their analyze how these enduring issues relate to their own lives and to history. They will provide examples for both the "Enduring Issue in Your Life" and the "In History and Current Events" sections of these enduring issues.

The next day I had my students work as a group to create posters for each enduring issue examined. Each poster had the enduring issue, synonyms, its definition (in their own words) and examples from history and today.

After going over all of these posters, I gave each student a particular historical situation/document and asked them to write a short response of what enduring issue was reflected in it and why.

*This was specifically designed for 8th grade but would also work well for 6th-9th grade.
