Your students are living in a globalized economy. How can you make sure your students not only survive, but thrive? The first step is to frame globalization issues in terms any middle and high school student can understand. This workshop will demonstrate lessons that explore key issues including trade, comparative advantage, protectionism, outsourcing, and immigration. Additionally, participants will consider both sides of the globalization debate – the benefits and the costs. Teachers will become equipped to pass onto students a firm understanding of how they can weigh the costs and benefits of globalization; and choose responsibly as consumers, employees, and citizens in a global economy.
Morning snacks and lunch will be provided.
