Social Studies and the World: Teaching Global Perspectives

Merry M. Merryfield and Angene Wilson
NCSS, Bulletin 103, 141 pp., 2005

“More than in any previous generation, today’s students will be actors on a global stage,” write Merry M. Merryfield and Angene Wilson. In this book, they recommend ways of developing the skills needed by stu- dents to learn about and understand world cultures, world history, globalissues and current events, as well as the links between the U.S. and the rest of the world. Useful for educators at all levels, the book is especially valuable for classroom teachers. Its 49 lesson plans cover the range of social studies subjects, showing how global perspectives can enhance the curriculum. The book also recommends and presents literature and other resources likely to stimulate students to make their own voyages of intellectual discovery. This is a vital resource for educators seeking to incorporate world awareness into the social studiescurriculum.
