Premise

Access to modern technological advances has made today’s world a smaller place. Understanding our world and its cultures requires a global perspective which examines, analyzes, and works toward resolution of important issues.

Stream Description

The Global Awareness Stream focuses on the study of global issues and the global decision-making processes for addressing them. Issues such as poverty, human rights, health and disease, hunger, war and conflict, population, and environment are investigated through studies in history, geopolitics, economics, mathematics, physical sciences, and social studies. Using this basis of knowledge, students become involved with analysis and creative problem-solving in relation to such current international issues. Cultural understanding is developed through activities in global arts and crafts, cultural mythology, global gardening, telecommunications, and foreign language study.
