Abstract:

From the Back Cover: Cultures and societies across the globe are enriching one another through unprecedented levels of interaction in an increasingly interdependent and complex world. In this global age, however, we also face problems that defy easy solutions and know no borders. This is the world the younger generation will inherit. To rise to its challenges, it is important that they understand the issues and learn about the work of such organizations as the United Nations, through which those challenges and issues can be addressed. The Kits on the United Nations are a step in this direction. International in their content and outlook, the kits are valuable curriculum enrichment packages covering topics ranging from pollution to peace-keeping, from decolonization to development. Science and mathematics teachers as well as history and social science teachers will find informative and creative units that fit easily into their course work. Published on the occasion of the United Nations' Fiftieth Anniversary, The Kits on the United Nations offer teachers and students of every subject a way to explore a range of global issues by linking their lives to the vast but connected world around them.
