Developing Global Perspectives about Nuclear Arms Control among Proactive Action Students in Rural Schools: A Teacher's Guide.
Peters, Richard
A teacher's guide to developing global perspectives about nuclear arms control among proactive action students in rural schools oulines the historical development of the current nuclear situation, describes a nuclear age curriculum, explains the importance of proactive and global perspectives, covers simulated situations, and provides a glossary of 23 selected nuclear arms terms. The history of nuclear arms development from World War II to the present is described. Emphasis is given to the idea that a nuclear age curriculum should include in-depth investigation of divergent views and allow students to form their own opinions. The importance of an active citizenry with a global perspective is also emphasized. Ways to develop global consciousness among students in rural schools are briefly noted: audiovisual and printed materials, guest speakers, enrichment resource materials, exchange student programs, field trips, group travel, small group research, simulation, clubs, pen-pal activities, festivals, adoption of needy children, community-based research, staged activities, and high school students reading stories about other lands to children in lower grades. The Proactive Action Model (perception--thought pattern--action) and a simulated international conference on nuclear arms limitation are outlined. Nineteen resource organizations and their addresses are listed. (MH)
