Abstract: These kits were originally prepared in 1976 and then tested during 1977 and 1978 in high schools, community colleges and study-action groups. There are four parts to the entire series: "World Development: An Overview"; "Resource Development: Canada and Brazil"; "Science and Survival"; "Through the Peoples' Eyes." They focus respectively on history, geography, science and literature. This first publication run is limited to 500 sets. The aim of the series is to provide an interdisciplinary approach to global development education suitable for a variety of educational settings. It includes both analysis and positive action in a learning process designed to encourage the learners' ability to analyze the development/underdevelopment process in both a global and a personal context. Finally, the kits encourage a non-competitive group sharing approach in arriving at "people-centered" solutions to development problems.
Each kit consists of several hundred pages of articles from a wide variety of sources including churches, corporations, research groups, magazines and large Non-Government organizations. Together in the four kits there are over 200 articles, and several hundred hours of study outlines. Complete curriculum planning resources are provided, although the kits have enormous flexibility to meet specific and more limited needs.
