How The World Works - Edition 2

A Resource for Teachers - suitable for Transition Year geography, history, economics and religious education.


The unit provides students with the opportunity to explore how structures of poverty and inequality are maintained on a global level. Students will also consider the role that they play in the world and how they can help change the way the world works by assuming their responsibility as global citizens. A strong emphasis on audiovisual and active learning makes this a fun and accessible Transition Unit for all Transition Year students.
