One of the aspects of all the Social Studies classes for Grades 9-12 is learning about current events. One of our ESLRs is being a global conscientious citizen, and in order to reach that, students must know what is going on in the world around them. Sometimes in our lives we get caught up with our day-to-day tasks and pressures that we forget to lift our heads and see what is happening outside our own bubble. So it is a good practice to get kids online, working on their research skills as they look for things happening in different parts of the globe. As most of our students hope to study abroad, it also allows for them to see what may be happening in the country that they hope to study in. It is a good practice for all of us to stay informed about the world; we can all be global citizens!
