MACOS and the Global Perspective.
Dow, Peter B.
The contributions that the elementary curriculum, "Man: A Course of Study" (MACOS), has made to global education are examined in this essay. It is contended that MACOS, which incorporates ecology, biology, anthropology, and the humanities, has fostered several goals of global education. These goals include: understanding cultures through an in-depth study of them; developing a vocabulary of thought for dealing with cross-cultural similarities and differences; and attaining a non-judgmental framework for dealing with issues of value. In short, MACOS is committed to helping students to grasp the interconnectedness of the world. (DB)
