Inquiry Driven Project

World Issues: A Geographic Analysis, Grade 12 Culminating Performance Task: Critically Analyzing a Country of Focus

Part One (Purpose and Process, Integrating Wiki)

For the purpose of this final assignment, you will aim to build an understanding of a developed/developing country and discuss the challenges or benefits it faces based upon its geographical flows.

You will be required to choose one item/commodity of your choice that you consume often and the one country of focus where that item originates from. This assignment will help you think geographically about the world by focusing on the production/extraction of certain types of commodities; some famous commodities include: chocolate, sugar, coffee, and rice. Upon researching your item and country, you will come to learn more about these commodities and their geographical flows and processes on a globalized level. These geographic flows are integral to globalization.

Taking it a step further, you will emphasize the impact fair/free trade has in the challenges or growth of your chosen country and form an argument about Canada’s role/relation to that country. Questions to help your thinking process include: What does this commodity tell us about its geographic flow and globalization more broadly? How do these geographic flows affect the economic freedom of this country? What is Canada’s role in this? Does Canada have a role?

You are able to articulate your research by developing your very own Wiki page where you will eventually be able to collaborate your findings and research with other peers. Creativity is encouraged! You are also encouraged to attend places like food banks or grocery stores to help you find cultural items that may add uniqueness to your assignment.


Part Two: (Integrating Tour Builder)

To spatially visualize the geographic flows through which your commodity travels, you will also produce a map; both a physical copy and a digital copy to show where the commodity primarily originates and where it ends up (try and document at least 6 key locations/countries on your map. For commodities that end up in Canada, please indicate Canada as a location.

The physical copy of your map must include: a title with a corresponding year, publication date, compass rose, a legend, and a scale. All labels and colouring should be neat and legible. (Blank world map attached for your reference).


The digital copy of your map must include: relevant locations where your commodity/product travels using Tour Builder and brief description/image of the role that country plays in the transporting process.
