The principles of these educa-tions are to pursue a value to live with others in the world.In order to accomplish this idea, Geographical Education should improve its processes of learning. It should notplace emphasis on only processes of ‘knowledge understanding' but also include the process of ‘value judgment'and ‘decision-making'. Value to live together in the world should be examined carefully in these processes.Through comparing two lesson plans on current world issues, the effectiveness of a process of ‘Self-reference'and ‘understanding of others' is revealed. The process of ‘Self-reference' is useful to become aware of one's ownresponsibility. Additionally, in the process of ‘understanding of others', students are able to realize the desires andviewpoints implicit in the problem.
