Current Theme - RW 7.1-7.3 Resources and Wealth
The current unit touches on principles from economics. We continue our focus on Pacific rim and northern rim countries. Students will look at trade from both the traditional barter systems to that used in developed nations. We consider the nature of a resource and investigate the close connection to standard of living/quality of life. Additionally, we consider the nature of sustainability and stewardship and their relationship. Assessments for this unit will include some smaller individual assignments, a group presentation and a unit test.
