How can I make a difference in the world today, tomorrow...forever? Global Issues in Action is an inquiry-based course centered around four inquiry projects. We start with a student change-maker ASD Sustainability Initiative project, embracing how through systems thinking practices we can improve our own community. We then learn how to create compelling questions through exploring the basics of anti-racism. Followed by the Edible Education unit while exploring how our food choices affect the planet. Culminating with a debate of what qualifies as 'Tech for Good'. All these inquiries develop skills necessary for further success in high school social studies.
