Global Culture - Year 11

Yes, with Year 11 we were once again indebted to Tony, whose Global Brand Quiz and powerpoint we were using today as a starter. Cheers once again Tony. My group did ask "do you ever do anything for Tony..." - of course !We discussed the idea that globalisation is leading to a global culture (or is it ?)
Once again we were indebted to Tony.
Are we heading for global culture ? What is the evidence for and against this ?What are the arguments for and against the development of a global culture ?

What is the evidence that a global culture (or it American cultural imperialism ? ) is developing ?

Is McDonalds really **** or not ?
You'll be doing some newspaper pieces this week...

Finally, you need to think about what contribution you are going to make to a multimedia piece on King's Lynn and its cultural diversity...

We will once again compare with other places: Liverpool and Nottingham in particular...

What culture do we have locally ?

Local bands
Local food
Local culture
Local religion
Local ethnic groups
Local celebrities
How do people in other parts of the country view us ?

When you say "the EU wants us..." are you sure that they actually do, or is this a rumour ?
Why else do you think they would like to standardise the emergency services number ?
Can you post the source of the information ?
