Here's the thing, journals happen everyday. So get used to it.
Basically, journal questions can be anything pertaining to ITGS that Ms. Draime wants to ask us our opinions about.
Try to be as thorough as possible; journals should be at least four sentences.
IMPORTANT: You must save them in your H-Drive under a folder (that you will make) titled "Journals". You must save your journals everyday, and save them by week.

Because this is an IB class, you should try to tie your journals to the IB Learner Profile; this will help your writing to be more in-depth and have a better quality.

Prompt: On page 20 of the Guide, it is stated that "Social impacts and ethical considerations need to be analyzed from both a local and global perspective, recognizing that attitudes and opinions are diverse within and between different cultures." Why is this important and what does this mean to you?

Poor: People need to have an open mind and take into consideration that their actions can have large impacts.
Average: Because of the differences in cultures around the world, what may be good and beneficial for one culture may be destructive for another. With this in mind, it is important to analyze the cause and effects of actions, on a local scale (such as impacting our community) and a global scale. This is important because it is very true and more people should take this idea into mind before they make actions. A better world for a better tomorrow! This cannot be accomplished if the actions of one are diminishing those of another.
Good: Due to the various cultures around the world, thousands of different mindsets and lifestyles exist in today's world. To prevent harm to these cultures, either cultures from our own country or those around the world, we need to analyze the effects of actions. These actions could result in positive or negative changes; they could alter the social aspects of cultures as well as the culture itself. And that is not fair to cause these alternations in a negative way, which is why it is important to have ethical considerations. What may benefit our culture or our society, could have the opposite effect on another culture or society. This concept should be taken into consideration always. This is important because the diversity around our world, even in our nation, is very significant to lifestyles and cultures. This diversity shows how the cause and effects can be positive and negative.
