PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Lessons using REAL WORLD connections

When is the last time you watched the news?

Do you know about what is going on in Iran? In Afghanistan?

I teach high school English. Although I am an avid reader, I confess I am horrible at keeping up with current events. If I was ever asked to go on a late night talk show to do a person on the street quiz, I would die of embarrassment ☺

Because of my own desire to keep up with world events and for my students to understand the importance of world events, I created this series.

Students use Internet sources like the United Nations official web page to complete assignments. This work fulfills the non-fiction requirements as well as the cross-curricular standards of the CCSS.

Topics covered in this unit:
• Student research to find the origin of the UN
• Student research to find the purpose of the UN
• Student in-depth research into a specific member country of the UN
• Country profile poster project
• Country profile poster presentation
