Global Visions. Teaching Suggestions and Activity Masters for Unit 2: World Competitiveness.
Procter and Gamble Educational Services, Cincinnati, OH.
This is a classroom-ready program to help students explore the economic forces that are shaping their world and their future. This program is designed to supplement social studies courses in economics, government, U.S. and world history, world cultures, and geography. The unit contains a newsletter for students in grades 9-12, four reproducible activity masters contained in a four-page teacher's guide, and a full-color map, "1996 World Competitiveness Scoreboard," presented as a full-sized wall poster. The learning objectives are: (1) to define 'apprentice' and to explain the value of apprenticeships in smoothing the path from school to work; (2) to explain how the international exchange of goods and services benefits all parties involved in trade; (3) to explain how expanding trade improves the quality of U.S. jobs; (4) to list five competencies that a Cabinet-level commission deemed essential for effectiveness at work; (5) to list factors conducive to competitiveness within nations; (6) to estimate how well the students would do on an employment test for production-line workers; and (7) to describe the correlation between academic achievement and income.
