Students in Joseph Harter's social studies class participated in a unique PBL opportunity. They participated in a mock World Population Summit where students represented countries and continents across the world, and had real and relevant conversations about some of the world's greatest issues. From current issues ranging from population growth, food, fertility and birth rates, health, and economics, the students asked questions to understand issues in their perspective countries and continents and come up with ways to resolve those problems.
