Global Change and American Citizenship Education: The Vital Role of History.
Tucker, Jan L.
U.S. citizenship education should be linked with international educational efforts so that students may learn to understand the array of complex changes that have been and are taking place throughout the world. For too long U.S. educators have been content to perpetuate a social studies curriculum that examines the United States separately from its relationship to the rest of the world. A global perspective on historical scholarship for U.S. citizenship education is sorely needed. The study of U.S. historical events in the context of world affairs will help students to understand the interconnected relationship that the United States is destined to have in the contemporary international order. A 36-item reference list. (DB)
