The growing interrelatedness of life on Earth has increased the need for citizens to possess the knowledge and sensitivity required to comprehend the global dimensions of political, economic and cultural phenomena. Global education, a component of environmental education, can be incorporated into social studies in order to link concerns for humans with concerns for the natural environment. Accordingly, this paper presents a rationale for global education, a discussion of infusing global education into the K-12 social studies curriculum, and examples of relevant learning activities. Appended are lists of teaching resources. (Author/WB)
