International Development in a Global Context. Module for Educators, Grades 7-12.
Hoffman, Dorothy D.
This curriculum guide consists of five learning modules designed to guide students through an inquiry strategy that will help them to see the developing world and groups within the United States experiencing development problems, through the eyes and experience of that population. Each lesson is divided by sections on objectives, set induction or review, learning sequences, closure for that day's lesson, and background information. The five topics covered are: "The Language of Separation: Words That Divide Us"; "Scarcity and Excess: The Linkages"; "Development: What Is It?"; "The Development of Underdevelopment: The Colonial Legacy"; and "From Paternalism to Partnership." The appendix consists of 28 related documents, including lesson plans, classroom activities, and background reports. (PPB)
