My students were well-aware that the international system has been changing in recent years, but they had trouble visualizing what SPECIFIC changes are occurring.
Enter this fantastic I-Chart! This chart provides eight possible global trends. With each article the students read, they address which, if any, that article addresses. I used this chart effectively for both an Inquiry-based Research Project and for the daily current events.
Through this resource, students were more engaged in class discussions and reached more substantive conclusions.
