Unit: Robert Becker_Chemical Conflicts around the World
Working in pairs, students will research, develop and share creative presentations on the chemical elements as valuable resources, unevenly distributed around the world. These presentations will focus on what the elements are used for, in what countries they are mined/processed and what international conflicts/controversies/issues surround their use. These conflicts may concern economics, politics, environmental concerns, human rights or any combination thereof. The students are required to present both sides of the issue and to incorporate the cultural perspectives of the people affected by the issue.
