Towards Better Education about the Third World: Curriculum Ideas for the Social Subjects in Secondary Education.
National Inst. for Curriculum Development (SLO), Enschede (Netherlands).
The lives of people in developing countries need to be compared with and connected to the lives of people in prosperous countries. This is a central issue in what is known in Europe as the North-South problem. This publication argues that it is a problem that deserves a more central place in the political education of young people in Europe. Ideas for formulating and introducing a developing nations education program in the schools are put forth. The ideas are presented in seven chapters: (1) introduction; (2) a basic program for 12- to 16-year-olds; (3) the design of a lesson plan; (4) determination and formulation of aims and objectives; (5) the selection and sequencing of the learning materials; (6) methodological design; and (7) assessment and testing.
