Cultivate students' appreciation for the global community and prepare them to function in an ever-shrinking world with this revealing series. Eight paired-case studies illustrate how common issues affect target-age youths and their families in the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe. Students improve their comparative skills and understanding of others' cultures as they explore the commonalities and differences in lifestyle, environment, economy, and other aspects of young peoples' lives in both regions.
The programs may be shown interchangeably as they fit the Western European unit in junior high school world geography and social studies courses. Each program addresses a fundamental geographic theme, making it useful for developing the geographic dimension of high school current events, cultures, international studies, and world history courses.
Common Issues in World Regions is the result of a unique international co-production involving 15 Northern American and Western European agencies. It is distributed to classrooms in the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe in order to strengthen what students in those regions learn about each other.
Eight 30-min. programs
