Education for a Global Society: A Resource Manual for Secondary Education Teachers.
Jane Addams Peace Association, Philadelphia, PA.; Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, Philadelphia, PA.
Over four hundred books, articles, and resource materials on the topic of global education are identified in this resource manual. It is designed for secondary school teachers to use in selecting reading and audiovisual resources to supplement courses with a global approach. Approximately 90% of the entries have been published since 1970. Material is arranged under four main headings called "world order values," which are seen to be the antitheses of major problems which bring stress, conflict, and human suffering to the world society. The four world order values are peace, economic equity, social justice, and ecological balance. Within each of the four content sections, entries are further characterized as books, articles, or resource materials. Most of the resource materials are films, which include information about length and color or black/white. Entries are listed alphabetically by author. Additional bibliographic information is given on title, publisher, and date. The guide concludes with additional lists of 40 related resource manuals and bibliographies; 67 periodicals which provide information on education for global interdependence; 102 agencies involved in concerns of peace and justice; and publishers' addresses for entries in the main section.
