Stockton and the World--Developing a Community-Based Global Education Approach.
Kobus, Doni Kwolek
The global education program of the Stockton (California) Unified School District has evolved from conferences, seminars, and workshops to the Stockton and the World project. The project began in 1971 with the district's participation in the Bay Area Global Education Program (BAGEP) intensive workshop training. Participants then sponsored global education curriculum development workshops and developed linkages between bilingual education and global education within the district. A conference on bilingual education and global education identified needs to develop school/community cooperation in solving educational problems, models within the school community that exemplify global concepts, and an awareness of the local international dimension of these concepts. Finally, a 1982 symposium on "Bilingual Education from an International Perspective" resulted in the development of the Stockton and the World project, which began with three components: a project which places international college students in public school classrooms, a calendar which provides examples of international linkages in the Stockton community, and a program to train high school students as global education instructional aids. Additional activities include a workshop series on Stockton and the World, international career week, and an intermediate grade unit which focuses on the Stockton community as a learning resource.
