As a group you will be divided into 5 sub-teams who will investigate a specific method to reduce disparities in wealth. Each team will need to produce a guide and a presentation for the rest of the group on how their method reduces disparities. Once completed the guides will be shared with everyone on www.nationsinsoc.org under Celebrations. Each guide will need to include the following:
  • Definition of the strategy.
  • How the strategy works.
  • A cost-benefit analysis of the strategy.
  • A case study of the strategy to illustrate the success or failure.

Presentation

  • No more than 10 minutes in length
  • Google slide presentation which you will share with me.
  • Images rather than words on the slides.
  • Cue cards to help with your presentation.
