Modules on the Issues, Forces, and Actors That Shape Our World

The renewed focus on civics education in this country provides a promising path for readying students for the challenges of twenty-first century citizenship. The Council on Foreign Relations has created a free curriculum to facilitate this critical work. World101 is a growing library of lessons that break down the fundamentals of international relations and the way the world around us works. Each module bursts with multimedia, from animated video explainers to interactive maps and charts, and uses storytelling to render complicated topics accessible to a wide range of learners. Educators are invited to explore the library of curriculum unitsGlobal Era Issues (11 modules), Regions of the World (6 modules), and How the World Works—and Sometimes Doesn’t (4 modules). They can also take a sneak peek at the first module in the newest content unit, Historical Contexts, comprised of lessons intended to help students answer compelling questions such as Where did democracy come from? and Why are we living longer, healthier lives? From essays and discussion questions to glossaries and up-to-date reading lists, World101 provides comprehensive teaching resources for each of the modules.
