Globalisation is an example of huge social change. We are connected to people in other nations socially, economically, politically and through our impact on the environment. We will explore these connections with a particular focus on our economic links and trade with the rest of the world. We will answer the following questions:

What is free trade?
What is fair trade?
What are the rights and responsibilities of a producer and a consumer?
How do our economic decisions impact on people, communities and nations?

You will have the opportunity to conduct an individual inquiry on a product of your choice from its site of production to its market place.

You will be assessed on: in-class activities; your ability to take and keep notes; and a final assessment (in a form of your choice) to show your understanding of the topic.
