Educators are encouraged in this document to practice a multi-disciplinary approach in the classroom to prepare students for new management styles in an interrelated society. The first section on perceptions covers the following: information processing (planning, implementing, assessing); the learning process (exploration, invention, application); mental operations/skills (critical thinking, decision making, problem solving); affect (attitudes, values); and critical thinking skills (program design, development, implementation and evaluation). The following sections discuss: the proactive action model (incorporating areas of critical thinking into a learning strategy); global education emphasizing interconnections among cultures, species and the planet; curriculum design/delivery as continuous, integrated and sequential; and twenty-first century global problems. Addresses of selected organizations involved in global concerns are appended. (FAC)
