I think that the specific global competencies uses many of Maslow's hierarchy's words which shows thought about the lesson plan on how students can apply the knowledge of globalization beyond the classroom. The word "big ideas seems a little vague but I am guessing it is the terms they will be learning in the lesson. I like the interdisciplinary aspect of incorporating mathematics and literature.
The instructional strategies and activities section was very specific and had a lot of resources which is great for students because they will have options and different ways to get them interested in the topic. I have never used workflow but it seems similar to google docs and the two can be used interchangeably.
The assignment seems authentic because globalization affects everyone and researching other countries and their political structure seems less authentic but you were able to tie it in my comparing the US. The lesson in cooperative because the students will be working in groups to research the countries. The lesson is constructive as well. Students are asked to to research and they are given questions to further their analysis of the information they found.
Overall very good, in depth lesson plan. Questions were specific and though provoking. I think they lesson would be interesting because you are seeing the scale of globalization and the reason behind it. Instead of just defining the term you have students search for their own information and presenting what they found reinforces the knowledge. It forces them to put what they found into words and analyze the information on a level that is more than just answering test questions.
