Courses and Descriptions

GIS4-0001Global Issues: Citizenship & Sustainability 40S

Students research and discuss relevant social, political, environmental, and economic issues as they affect Canada and the world at large.  Through their inquiry, students will ask questions and discuss what actions can be taken in light of their research.

The course is “topic” driven – 1st Nations concerns, water & pollution, non-renewable energy sources vs. sustainable energy practices, illiteracy and poverty will be discussed.  Students will be involved in selecting other topics as the course progresses and they will assume responsibility for sharing their findings with the class.

The key aspect of the course will be participation – students must be active rather than passive.  There will be no textbook required as most of the data will be taken from the Internet.
