Global Education Guidelines.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
This publication provides guidelines to help school districts in Michigan initiate or strengthen global education programs. A definition of and rationale for global education are included in part 1. Global education is defined as a lifelong growth in understanding, through study and participation, of the world community and the interdependency of its people and ecological, social, economic, and technological systems. Part 2 lists the goals of a global education program. An interdisciplinary approach is highly encouraged. A brief discussion of implementation, with an emphasis on school community interaction, is provided in Part 3. Part 4 contains criteria for program development. The last part contains a bibliography of global education resources. The bibliography, which comprises about half of the publication, cites teacher resource material, and print and non-print materials for classroom use at all levels. (Author/RM)
