Global Visions. Teaching Suggestions and Activity Masters for Unit 1: The Global Marketplace.
Procter and Gamble Educational Services, Cincinnati, OH.
This is a classroom-ready program about the U.S. economy's number one challenge: globalization. Few historical forces have more power to shape students' lives than globalization, the gradual economic integration of all the world's nations. This program is designed to supplement social studies courses in economics, government, U.S. and world history, world cultures, and geography. The unit contains a newsletter for students in grades 9-12, four reproducible activity masters included in a four-page teacher's guide, and a full-color map, "The Global Marketplace," presented as a full-sized wall poster. The learning objectives are: (1) to define the word 'globalization' as it relates both to the merging of the world's economies and to shifts in the way U.S. corporations operate; (2) to explain why globalization requires workers at all levels to have more flexibility, more skills, and more knowledge; (3) to list two advantages of globalization for consumers; (4) to describe at least two challenges of globalization for businesses; (5) to list three main categories of goods that are exported and imported by the United States; and (6) to explain how the history of U.S. tariffs reflects a continual debate between protectionists and free traders.
