Global Issues and Challenges: Human Trafficking

You are studying the responsibilities of a global citizen. This study has brought our class to research one of the
most pressing issues affecting the world right now, human trafficking. To learn about this topic in depth you
will first watch a video from Ecuadors Department of the Interior. In a pair-share, you will discuss what you
already know about the topic, and your reactions, feelings, and thoughts regarding the information presented in
the video. Second, with your assigned group, you will then explore three different documents: the UNODC
document on relevant facts regarding human trafficking from Chile and Brazil, UNICEFs basic information on
human trafficking document from Costa Rica, and a web page on the prevention of human trafficking from
Mexico. You will complete a comprehension guide to assess your understanding of these documents. Third, as
a class we will analyze additional information on the topic specifically relating to the social and economic
impact of human trafficking, protection and assistance for the victims, and general recommendations on what
can we do as citizens to stop this type of crime. You, will then be formally assessed in your understanding of
the different aspects involved in human trafficking. Fourth, you will conduct an online investigation on cases of
human trafficking in your community and/or place of origin. You will write a two-page report on your findings.
Finally, you will create a technological tool of your choice (e.g. podcast, Facebook page, webpage, video, etc..)
that will be shared online with others to educate, and to help bring to light this horrible offence. You will also
present your product to the school on July 30th, during our commemoration of the Day Against Human
Trafficking assembly.
