Understandings of Ideologies - Students will examine the origins, values and components of competing ideologies. They will explore multiple perspectives regarding relationships among individualism, liberalism, common good and collectivism.

Developing understandings of the roles and responsibilities associated with citizenship will encourage students to respond to emergent global issues.
