Coalition Building for Global Perspectives: A Process and Resource Manual.
Brown, Jeffrey L., Comp.; Gotsch, Paula, Comp.
Arranged in four parts, this manual describes the experience of the New Jersey Consortium for Global Education in organizing a statewide project to increase emphasis on international education in the classroom. Part 1 charts the history of the consortium and includes background of global education in New Jersey, components of the grant proposal to the U.S. Department of Education, and programming problems. Part 2 contains the rationale and guidelines for the consortium development. The leadership seminars and summer institutes offered as part of the consortium project are summarized in part 3. Resources found to be particularly useful in seminars, as well as sample agendas, announcements, correspondence, and an evaluation instrument are provided. Information on four global education summer institutes for K-12 teachers consists of course descriptions, objectives, teaching methods, requirements, readings, and lists of print and media materials. Part 4 contains a list of resource developers and suppliers and a selected bibliography. A summary evaluation, consortium membership roster, consortium rules, and two readings on global education are provided in the appendices. (LP)
