Globalization of Social Studies in Early Childhood Education.
Davis, Josephine Barry
This paper offers ways of introducing young children to global history and geography at the age of four when they traverse a period of intuitive sensitivity to time and space. Through this instruction they develop lasting interest in history and geography. The curriculum used, "The First Frontier," presents space as world geography and time as the history of its people, in keeping with the child's time-space world view. The curriculum guides children through various time periods and world geographical locations. (Contains 13 references.) (BT)
