Guide to the Concept: Interdependence.
King, David C.
This draft outline presents and organizes for teachers one of the fundamental concepts in war/peace studies: interdependence. As the definitional statement makes clear, interdependence involves learning to look at the world as a single system, and to identify and analyze its various subsystems. Part of the rationale for considering interdependence as a major concept in war/peace education is that an understanding of the concept and its various subconcepts, is a vital first step in the students' ability to come to terms with his own prejudices, misperceptions, and stereotyping. The guide lists sample affective and cognitive objectives, and provides a developmental idea outline of the concept interdependence and its related subconcepts (universality, origins, dynamics, development, effects, and methods and techniques for dealing with interdependence.) For each of these, topic and content samples are outlined. Suggested grade levels (9-12) and hypothetical course titles are designated for these topic and content samples. A bibliography lists sources designed as starting points for the development of particular topics and content samples, as well as more general sources on interdependence. (Related documents are SO 001 509, 001 513; and SO 002 078.) (Author/JLB)
