Teachers' Guide for World Military and Social Expenditures 1985.
Drum, Jan; Otero, George
Information about the world and how it works is often hard to locate and difficult to understand. The objectives and activities in this teaching guide were developed to complement the "World Military and Social Expenditures" (WMSE) report in the study of global issues in secondary school classrooms. The report contains well-documented and up-to-date statistics presented in concise narrative, charts, graphs, and maps. The WMSE report encourages the reader to make conscious and direct comparisons between expenditures for military and social needs worldwide. Students using the activities in this guide can expect to increase their skills in: (1) reading social and scientific data more critically, (2) using statistics as a tool for analyzing important global issues, and (3) recognizing the perspectives and bias that underlie the presentation of social and scientific data. The data in WMSE are applicable to such global issues as: (1) development, (2) arms and security, (3) global inequity, and (4) social and economic justice. (BZ)
