It is my favorite unit to teach. This unit takes teachers and students through modern economic conditions through a presentation that uses Jared Diamond's theory explaining the haves and have nots in the world. All of the multimedia resources are available via the web and are hyperlinked in the relevant assignments. This is a very thorough unit that really implements the philosophy of Big History, investigating the big picture questions of why the world has developed into its current state. Please email me with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about this unit. If you don't want the whole unit, I have broken up sections of it to be sold individually.
