New York Friends Group, Inc., New York. Center for War/Peace Studies.; Denver Univ., CO. Center for Teaching International Relations.
The purpose of this compilation of teacher-developed descriptive evaluations of curriculum materials is to provide practical guidance to available materials dealing with the selected themes of interdependence, conflict, and change. Each of six conceptual units presented on change, conflict, identity, interdependence, power and authority, and values and valuing, contains introductory information to all the materials analyzed, indexing them by conceptual units, topics/techniques, typical courses into which they might be categorized, and grade level. The bulk of each unit is made up of edited versions of the descriptive teacher evaluations. Bibliographic and cost information for each curriculum title are provided along with information on the circumstances under which the materials were used, the grade level, teaching time, and preparation time required. Comments on content, focus, key concepts, goals, helpful supplementary materials, required student abilities, motivation associated with the use of the materials, and additional insights complete each description.
