Stephen Quinn Unit: Introduction to Global Studies Aim: How do we define a society?

Practice Review Goals: Students will describe the five characteristics of a society. Students will demonstrate mastery of the subject by answering questions on the topic via a website. Main Ideas/ Understandings: A society can be defined by five main characteristics: Social, Political, Ideological, Religious, and Economical. These five characteristics come together under the acronym S.P.I.R.E. By understanding these five concepts you can properly define any society or civilization. Materials: Website Activities/ Questions/ Transitions: 1. Students will be given an introduction on the first page on how all societies can be defined by five characteristics. 2. By clicking on the first slide, they will be given a page where they will read about the first part: Social. 3. Once the page has been finished being read, they will answer a question on the topic. If they get the answer the right, they move on to the next page. If they get the answer wrong, they choose a different answer until it is right. 4. Steps 2 and 3 are repeated for the rest of the sequence: Political, Ideological, Religious, and Economical. 5. Once all are completed, there will be a page that shows all five segments with a reminder on how to remember it: S.P.I.R.E.
