This lesson introduces students about international organizations and their impact on our global world. The groups covered in this lesson are: the United Nations, UNICEF, the International Court of Justice, the World Trade Organization, the Red Cross, NAFTA and NATO. An overview of the UN is provided including the purpose and organization of the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council. Students will get are provided with examples of UN missions and military operations. Next students will look at the UN’s world court – The International Court of Justice located in The Hague and typical cases heard by this court. Some of the shortcomings of the UN Court and Security Council are provided with examples. An overview of UNICEF and their mission to help children are provided and some of the services they provide. NATO – the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is reviewed with a look at their founding and role in the Cold War – as well as operations and countries involved. The World Trade Organization and its mission for free trade is covered as well as tariffs and “protectionism” with the notion of a more global trade economy. NAFTA or the North American Free Trade Agreement is also included and criticisms over free trade and the WTO / NAFTAs mission is introduced.

Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers.

Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah – as well as state social studies tests such as Texas’ STAAR exam. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams.

As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.
