History in the Global Age.
Kang, SunJoo
This paper attempts to clarify: (1) the need to educate citizens to cope with contemporary global challenges and (2) the purpose of history and to examine the way to organize history in the global age. The document suggests that the purpose of world history and national history is to enable students to develop a global perspective and that world history should be viewed in all its aspects from a global perspective. The paper contends that the goal of history teaching must change from the focus of U.S. citizenship to that of world citizen. The text is divided into six parts: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "The Age of Global Interdependence"; (3) "Citizen Education in the Global Age"; (4) "Global Perspective in History"; (5) "History for Global Perspective"; and (6) "Conclusion."
