• Rationale

    As the world becomes increasingly interconnected through mutual social, political, economic, and environmental concerns and rapidly advancing technology, the need to understand human culture from a global perspective is critical.  As today’s students confront real-world issues, such a perspective is essential if they are to understand the connections among the world’s people and places and become competent, productive citizens.  This class fosters the guiding principle of the Hazleton Area School District that each student will gain the knowledge, abilities, skills, and values necessary to adapt and to succeed in our competitive world.
