IOER Learning List Help & Information

It can be as small as a lesson or as large as a curriculum. It can be constructed by a user or team of users, and has several features, including:

  • Allowing users to browse every detail of the Learning List
  • Restricting access to assessments and answer keys
  • Sharing the Learning List directly or as a widget on your website

13.5 - Global Poverty


(Obj. 13.5: Describe the burdens on health caused by global poverty.) Students will identify the impact of global poverty on health. They will begin by grappling with a staggering number: 1.2 billion (the # worldwide living in extreme poverty). Then they will discuss a statement about poverty being the greatest threat to health. Next they will read an overview of global poverty and some facts about poverty. Finally they will brainstorm and come up with one action step they can take to reduce poverty.
