Global Studies in an Issues-Centered Curriculum.
This paper examines different approaches to global studies through a selective analysis of the theory in the field. Key questions are posed as criteria for deciding which issues are most adequately suited for study in an issues-based curriculum. Results of a limited survey of high school students who completed a course in global education are presented and analyzed. The paper advocates global studies to orient students to their role (current and future) as members of a new civic culture. (EH)
