SUMMARY
It's Just a Dollar is a simulation-based social studies unit that explores the global connection between the producer and the consumer and the ethical considerations involved. Students will take on the role of Central American coffee producers, and use it as a platform to explore the cycle of economic dependence. In the process, they will also examine the larger issue of poverty, its influence on decision making, and its tendency to self-perpetuate. Finally, the students will evaluate the potential of technology, cooperatives and ethical (or "green") labeling to break that cycle. Looking Outward Publications is committed to developing interactive, engaging, simulation-based curriculum that explores the complex patterns of human interactions in today's world. Each simulation emphasizes crossdiscipline integration, multiple perspectives and global interdependence as students evaluate the root causes of today's problems and are challenged to get involved in finding their solution.
