Every day, important issues and events impact small towns, big cities and entire nations. This is reflected in the unique experiences and diverse perspectives of people worldwide. Today’s students need to be more aware of what is happening both locally and globally, and they must understand the various sides of any issue to draw their own conclusions. Additionally, many assignments require students to use primary sources to relate classroom learning to the real world.
