I’ve passed the baton of the Global Studies course to a colleague for this quarter. However, my colleague asked me to substitute for her on two days, and it so happened that the material to be discussed on these days included the text I was the least proud of creating from the last two years of teaching this course.
This gave me the opportunity of reworking the text, which was a Global Studies version of the cultural reflection text for Chapter 11 (La France vu d’ailleurs) of Réseau 2.
As the French election results had recently been announced, I decided to discuss international perspectives on the results of this election. The adapted text, including the comprehension and discussion questions, can be found here.
