Global Issues 5

Project Organizer

KS3: ages 11-14Book

This is the fifth in a series of five write-in project organizers, one for each year of the International Baccalaureate’s Middle Years Programme (which covers ages 11-16).

It contains six units, each with a different theme drawn from the UN Millennium Development Goals and structured around a unit question. Two or three different subjects are brought together within each unit, to structure and facilitate interdisciplinary study. The units are:

  • Poverty and hunger (Humanities, Physical education and Language B)
  • Conflict and peace (Language A and Visual art)
  • Education for all (Technology and Humanities)
  • Health and disease (Mathematics and Sciences)
  • Global trade and development (Mathematics and Humanities)
  • Environmental sustainability (Language A and Sciences)

It has been developed by Oxford and the IB to support the IB’s philosophy of interdisciplinary learning and international-mindedness. Once completed, it forms a valuable record of achievement for the year.
