Potential Essay Questions
 
Essay Question #1. Who are the "winners" and who are the "losers" in the process of globalization and why? What history forces are involved with globalization?

We spent time on the last class period dealing with this issue. How could you bring in other information from the units on imperialism, industrialism, and others to help answer the question. The course instructor will grade the answer not on some basis of right or wrong, but instead with how you organize your argument and cite information to support your answer.
