4.4 Leadership

Should leaders make decisions on their own accord (in the best interest of all under her/his rule), or should the leader reflect the ideals and principles called for by those same "subjects"?  Should power be exerted from "above" or reflect beliefs from "below"?

4.3 Democratic Spectrum?

What obligation does the United States have in promoting democracy?  Can democracy be “exported” or must it emerge from within a nation?  Are governments either democratic or undemocratic, or is there a spectrum? 

4.2 Liberty vs Security

Back to something we explored earlier.  Political Freedom vs Economic Stability.  Which do you value more than the other?  Please take a stand, and frame your answer around what was presented & discussed this past week.

4.1 Democracy

Consider Democracy.  Is it ALWAYS the best form of government; for everyone, everywhere, and at all times?

3.EC2 IB Americas - What is it All About?
Describe this course to others
     - What background skills/interest help lead to success
     - What you actually do in class
     - What you will learn by doing in the class
     - Why it might be worthwhile (or not - BE HONEST)
3.5 & 3.6 Success

What defines (or determines) success?  External or internal perception of achievement?  Yes, apply your reasoning to Chile & Argentina, but also try to include connections to other nations & people in history.

3.EC1 Mo' Money

You have a (legal) opportunity to make more money than your fellow workers, but it involves a degree of deception (lying - hiding the truth).  Do you do it?  Explain your reasoning.

3.3 & 3.4 Darwinism

A "bigger" and/or more stable nation gets involved with the affairs of a "smaller' and/or less stable nation.  Do intentions matter more than results?  Basically, is it acceptable if the results were not (as) positive as anticipated or hoped?  Consider imperialism, modernization, education, economics, etc.  But, as always, you can simply state what you may have learned this week.

3.1 & 3.2 History

What is the purpose of History?  Why study it?  But we should also look into HOW it is studied.  What should be explored?  basically, look into the study of history and how it fits within a society's educational standards.  Consider your History IA, but also reflect on ALL of your previous history classes & lessons.  What proved useful and rewarding?  What was pointless?  Are there any components that proved useful upon further reflection?

2.EC2 Fame or Fortune

You are granted one choice - either immediate and eternal fame or unlimited wealth. Which would you choose? Explain why.
