Stewardship. 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 units, this curriculum on stewardship was designed to be infused with existing social studies courses aimed at students in grades 5-12. Concept-based and skills-oriented, the curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of the relationship between humans and global natural environments; of the relationship between humans and global social environments; of why global cooperation is an important human goal; of various types of global cooperation; and of the effects of each on natural/social environments and humans. 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. They are accompanied by charts listing specific activities, print and nonprint materials, enrichment activities, and suggestions for evaluation. A rationale statement concludes the curriculum. (LH)
