Reviewer Comments:

The website globalization101.org is an excellent resource that supports teachers and students in learning about topics related to globalization. There are detailed lesson plans on various topics including trade, migration, culture, women, and much more. Each lesson has a detailed lesson plan with objectives, standards, materials, and time. The lessons can be used "as is" or adapted the individual needs of one’s course or student level. The creators of the site and the lessons are looking for teachers to field test the lessons as well as write lessons on other globalization topics. Beyond the lessons for teachers, there are also links that students can access directly to improve their understanding of globalization.
