  13. 17. Follow the Yellow Brick Road to your Goal:
  14. 18. Take a stand on the issue and provide supporting research <ul><li>A Resource-Based Economy is a system in which all goods and services are available without the use of money, credits, barter or any other system of debt or servitude. All resources become the common heritage of all of the inhabitants, not just a select few. The premise upon which this system is based is that the Earth is abundant with plentiful resource; our practice of rationing resources through monetary methods is irrelevant and counter productive to our survival. </li></ul><ul><li>From “The Venus Project” </li></ul><ul><li>http:// www.thevenusproject.com/anewResource.php </li></ul>
  15. 19. Here is a recommendation for addressing/resolving the issues raised by the driving question <ul><li>After researching the four ancient civilizations and comparing and contrasting various aspects of their economies, identify the factors that make an economy weak or strong. </li></ul><ul><li>While researching, take note of the factors that helped to create successful economies. Identifying these criteria will enable you to begin to construct a model for a successful 21 st century economy. </li></ul>
  16. 20. <ul><li>Assignment into groups </li></ul><ul><li>Introduction to rubrics </li></ul><ul><li>Research (See suggested bibliography) </li></ul><ul><li>Virtual field trips </li></ul><ul><li>Mind Mapping </li></ul><ul><li>Culminating group project (output) </li></ul>GUIDE TO PROCESS
