Honors 11: Globalization Introduction

We began today discussing our thoughts on Dr. Strangelove as well as the Cat’s Cradle/Satire unit.

Next, we started to define Globalization. We looked at a still shot of Osama Bin Laden from an October 7, 2001 broadcast from a small cave in the mountains in Eastern Afghanistan in order to understand all the global factors in play to make our receiving of that broadcast possible.

Then, we looked at this TEDtalk to help develop our understanding of globalization and what it could possibly entail for our present and future.

Here’s the unit calendar and the indy reading list (the book you choose will be the primary source for the globalization research paper).
