A world studies elective course for grades 10-12 analyzes the political, economic, social, philosophical, scientific, technological, and psychological issues in order to provide a framework for arriving at meaningful predictions about twenty-first century life. Course goals indicate that students will explore some of the possibilities for man in Century 21, examine some of the difficulties involved in achieving effective communication, examine the intellectual and emotional problems to be encountered by subcultures in America and by underdeveloped countries, analyze some of the problems of living in a cybernetic world, explore the physical and psychological implications of man's ability to create and control life, make inferences about the future of space and ocean exploration, predict some alternative futures for the family in Century 21, and critically discuss the concept of world government. The arrangement of the elective course is similar to other series of quinmester courses described in related documents. (Author/KSM)
