|IX. Global Connections
Social studies programs should include experiences that provide for the study of global connections and interdependence.
The realities of global interdependence require understanding the increasingly important and diverse global connections among world societies. Analysis of tensions between national interests and global priorities contributes to the development of possible solutions to persistent and emerging global issues in many fields: health care, economic development, environmental quality, universal human rights, and others. Analyzing patterns and relationships within and among world cultures, such as economic competition and interdependence, age-old ethnic enmities, political and military alliances, and others, helps learners carefully examine policy alternatives that have both national and global implications. In the middle years, learners can initiate analysis of the interactions among states and nations and their cultural complexities as they respond to global events and changes
