Forms of Government
Our middle school Global Gateway curriculum is designed to provide you and your students with essential attitudes, skills and knowledge for global citizenship, while exploring the complexity of current global issues. Through embedded social entrepreneurship principles, it promotes an understanding of the student as an active participant in the world, with an important role and crucial responsibilities.
The curriculum is aligned to the Common Core Standards, P21 Standards - 21st Century Skills, National Educational Technology Standards, and Career Technical Education Standards and organized in the following six main themes: Global Society, Global Geography, Global Environment, Global Education, Global Economy, Global Politics.
"Forms of Government" is one of three in a Global Politics unit. Students will explore the impact of global political systems on everyday life, as well as the complexity of the process which countries use to make political decisions, both internally and globally. Students will investigate forms of government and voting rights, relating these concepts to selected social entrepreneurship regions of study.
