Teaching about Global Issues: Population, Health, Hunger, Culture, Environment.
Greenburg, Hazel Sara, Ed.
This curriculum guide is a compilation of curriculum pieces that have appeared either in "Intercom" or in another earlier curriculum guide but are still vital and relevant; what binds the issues in the pieces together is the urgency of the problems they pose--urgent issues for both developed and "underdeveloped" nations anywhere on the face of the earth. Materials in the guide have been statistically updated, and many of the classroom strategies incorporate some of the most recent knowledge about student learning. Activities in the guide are: (1) "Setting a Framework in Teaching about Global Issues"; (2) "Becoming a Population Detective"; (3) "What Is Hunger? What Is Health?"; (4) "Digging to the Roots of Hunger"; (5) "Helping to End Hunger"; (6) "Shared Understanding"; (7) "How Can We Best Understand Life in Developing Countries?"; (8) "Perception and the Environment"; (9) "Is There a Water Crisis?"; (10) "Developing an Energy Policy--A Decision Making Simulation"; (11) "On Your Own"; and (12) "A Feeling for the Earth." Each activity contains performance objectives, classroom procedures, worksheets, and fact sheets. (BT)
