Social Science Education Consortium, Inc., Boulder, CO.; Denver Univ., CO. Center for Teaching International Relations.
Not only is it important to present a global perspective across the curriculum, it is especially important that children be introduced to a global perspective as early as possible. Children are most amenable to learning about other peoples and cultures between the ages of seven and 12. This guide contains 24 classroom activities designed to illustrate the concepts of global awareness, human values, global systems, global issues and problems, and global history. Each activity suggestion includes sections on: introduction, objectives, grade level, time required, materials and preparation, procedure, and follow up. A list of 35 additional resource materials and 37 organizations is also included. (PPB)
