Human Ecology: A Suprastructure for Global Education.
Riggle, Richard
Descriptions of global education tend to be either fragmented or nebulous. Consequently, the educator is left with little tangible basis for developing instructional programs. As a corrective measure, this paper advocates using fundamental ideas from the disciplines of geography and environmental sociology that collectively contribute to the formation of 'human ecology' as a suprastructure for the analysis of current issues that are critical to global well-being. By arranging related concepts on a flow chart and factoring out secondary issues, the resulting cohesive structure reveals interrelated human and environmental factors that interface with the social, physical, and natural sciences. A 15-item list of references is included. (Author/DB)
