Cooperation. Our Common Home: Earth. A Curriculum Strategy to Affect Student Skills Development and Exposure to Diverse Global Natural/Social Environments.
One of a series of global education instructional materials, this unit on cooperation was designed to be infused with existing social studies courses aimed at students in grades 5-12. Concept-based and skills-oriented, this curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of primary and secondary human goals; local, community, national, and international life space; human relationships among individuals, groups, and nations; and contemporary global issues/problems which require international cooperation for goals achievement. Following an introduction, the importance of combining geography education, ecological studies, and a sociological perspective in enhancing a student's global awareness is emphasized. A series of charts showing the concept to be taught, the topic, essential student outcomes, performance indicators, and content are included. These are accompanied by charts listing specific activities, print and nonprint materials, enrichment activities, and suggestions for evaluation. A rationale statement concludes the curriculum. (LH)
