Global Dimensions in the New Social Studies.
Spurgin, John H.; Smith, Gary R.
This survey identifies a number of materials and approaches in social studies/social science education containing one or more components useful for global education. These components are described analytically, in a format designed to facilitate comparisons among materials. The intention of the authors is to provide a handy, practical tool for teachers and curriculum supervisors in their attempts to select new materials appropriate for integration within the existing curriculum to help students better understand the realities of the global dimension of their lives. Fourteen projects are analyzed and indexed by subject, director, source, publisher, and grade level; twenty-two simulation/games and eight global education projects or organizations are annotated. The introduction to the survey and a final bibliography give an overview of global (international) education as a part of high school curricula from the earlier 1960's to the present. (Author/JH)
