U.S. and Europe Online Lesson Plan

Class groups investigate the economic and political implications of a country's policies on genetically modified foods, craft a position paper detailing that policy, and share their findings with the class. Armed with this information, individuals then create a commercial to convince Europeans to eat genetically engineered foods or convince American consumers not to buy GM foods.

I've enjoyed being able to see other teachers' great ideas and implement them in the classroom. Also, the ability to use another teacher's PowerPoint and edit as needed is a huge boon as it saves time (especially since I am teaching a new topic this year).
