Video - What's Next in 2011?

Like other news shows, this weekend the CBS Sunday Morning show had some 2010 retrospective pieces. They also aired a few "looking ahead" pieces that I enjoyed. One of those pieces, America Asks What's Next in 2011, I'll be using in my Civics class tomorrow. America Asks What's Next in 2011 is a six minute video that looks back over the history of the United States, the current challenges facing the US, and then has some experts make predictions about the future of the United States.



CBS Sunday Morning also has videos on the same theme of predictions for 2011 in Asia and in Europe.

Applications for Education
Tomorrow afternoon my Civics students will be watching America Asks What's Next in 2011 and then making their own predictions about the future of the country. We spent all of December focused on economic issues so I'm predicting that many of my students predictions will be about the economy.
