Human Ecology: A Suprastructure for Global Education.
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)
