Teaching about Global Issues. ERIC Fact Sheet No. 4.
ERIC Clearinghouse for Social Studies/Social Science Education, Boulder, CO.
The fact sheet discusses the educator's role in helping students develop an appreciation for global issues affecting their lives and an understanding of the interrelationships binding our society to world regions and peoples. The first section makes a distinction between global education and international or cross-cultural studies. Possible topics for teaching units on global studies as well as educational objectives are presented. It is stressed that a schoolwide program is not likely to be successful unless it has the active support of the district and community. Global education is considered to be equally relevant for students of all academic, social, and economic levels. The second section lists 19 regional, national, and international global education oriented organizations which offer free brochures or catalogs. Eight books and articles published between 1977 and 1980 are listed. In addition to bibliographical information and the annotation, ERIC accession numbers are provided for these items. (LH)
