Current Issues Series Overview

This Miro Board, an online bulletin board, provides 1) a quick way to view the entire Current Issues Series, and 2) a brief overview of each unit in the Current Issues Series. All the units in the series are featured in the blue box at the top of the board. The other boxes highlight how the units from this series can be used in a variety of courses. There is a navigation panel in the lower right corner of the board that allows you to zoom in/out or pan around. There is also a table of contents available if you click on the >> icon and select Frames in the lower left corner of the Miro board.

You can also read more about the curriculum units in the Current Issues Series by visiting each unit’s webpage.
