A Two Way Approach to Understanding: Issues in Global Education. Second Edition.
McDaniel, Rick, Comp.; Petrie, Jim, Comp.
By focusing on issues, global education provides students with a better understanding of the country and the world in which they live. The issues approach stresses that global education is a two-way approach to understanding: it is both a way of teaching and a way of learning. This book provides resources for the teacher who has decided to teach development by the issues method. Activities presented range in grade level appropriateness from grade 4-12. An introduction discusses effective global education and development education. Fifty-seven activities focus on differences that exist in wealth and power between nations; assumptions about development; ways in which other cultures are "interpreted;" trading relationships between North and South; poverty and population; refugees and migrants; aid; food; water; literacy; environment; and women. An appendix provides 15 international games. Contains 28 references. (LZ)
