Developing the Global Linkage Concept for Cooperative Living Habitats among Students Enrolled in Global Education Courses.
Designed for teachers of middle school, junior high, and high school global education courses, this paper encourages the development of a global linkage concept for attaining universal goals such as the protection of the global environment. Following a rationale for and definition of global education, a brief history of relationships between nations is given. A word about 20th century economic development precedes further description of the global linkage concept. Global linkage is described as a state of interaction among the world's nations in such a way that cooperative living habitats are created. Education is proposed as a starting point for achieving this linkage. Sample global education units on environmental awareness (grades 9-12), sensory awareness (grades 5-12), global environments (grades 6-12), and interdependence (grades 5-12) are provided. A list of special interest organizations and author comments concludes the document. (LH)
