Comparative World Issues for Grades 1-12. Comparative Studies Series.
Lamy, Steven L.; And Others
This teaching guide on global issues contains 20 activities for students in grades K-12. The global activities focus on the themes of inequality, development and technology, human rights, and basic human needs. For example, an activity called "Human Rights" shows students the distribution of land in South Africa as compared to the number of black and white inhabitants. A game, " A Simple Roll of the Dice," shows students how chance plays an important role in the concept of inequality. An activity called "Limited World Model" demonstrates the effect that the arms race, foreign aid, and technology have on both rich and poor countries. A game, "Help or Hinder: How to Give Good Aid," helps students explore whether the country receiving or the country giving foreign aid should determine the method of assistance. Each activity includes an introduction and a list of objectives. Specified are the grade level, time required for the activity, and materials needed. Information is given on procedure to follow and there are debriefing questions. Often there is a list of optional or additional procedures and references and resources. A major portion of the guide provides handout materials for teaching the activities. (Author/NE)
