Global Development Studies. A Model Curriculum for an Academic Year Course in Global Systems and Human Development at the Secondary and Undergraduate Levels of General Education.
Management Inst. for National Development, New York, NY.
The course of study, an experimental model intended for use in secondary grades and higher education, centers on mankind in a global context. Main objectives of the course are to help students understand with cognitive depth the realities of global systems, interdependencies, and imbalances and develop conscious attitudes toward their own beliefs and conceptions and those of others. Some of the teaching techniques suggested are surveys, interviews, research, and the use of audiovisual materials and print materials to stimulate group discussion. The course contains the following four parts: 1) building global perspectives; 2) historical background; 3) global interdependence; and 4) evaluation and comparison. Objectives, rationale, a content outline, some suggested exercises, and some material resources are provided for each part. The following information is contained in the appendices, which comprise half of the guide: Appendix A, a discussion of structural methodology in global development studies; Appendix B, teaching exercises on the historiography of global development followed by an extensive bibliography; Appendix C, an annotated bibliography of periodicals; Appendix D, an index of resource organizations.
