“Communities around the World” Students learn about communities around the globe and about global citizenship. Using their own background knowledge about communities, students make comparisons across time and space, examining different communities and their cultures. Culture includes social organization, customs and traditions, language, arts and literature, religion, forms of government, and economic systems. Students are introduced to the concepts of prejudice, discrimination and human rights, as well as to social action connected to a service learning project focusing on a global issue.
