Description: The objective of the lesson is to evaluate the benefits and challenges of continued development and dependence on nuclear energy as a source of power for developed, as well as developing nations. Using the essential questions “How can people cooperatively solve common challenges?” and “What responsibilities do we owe the preservation of the Earth’s environments?”, students will work as cooperative teams to investigate the current status of nuclear energy production and dependence, the geo-political issues arising from new access to nuclear power sources, and the impact of nuclear energy on the environment. Student learning and team research will be presented through a classroom “Fishbowl Global Summit”.
