Kraemer, Dagmar; Stassen, Manfred
This report summarizes a conference that was held as part of a continuing effort to develop methods by which U.S. schools can better respond to challenges in international education for the 1990s. Roughly divided into five parts, the conference minutes outlined: (1) the progress made on resolutions adopted at the conference held one year earlier; (2) The different forms of international cooperation as adopted by the various states across the United States and their implementation in the classroom; (3) the role and function of professional organizations in the information disseminating process, including the possibility of increased cooperation between professional organizations; (4) the role and function of the ERIC Clearinghouse for the Social Studies at Indiana University and the Japan Clearinghouse as possible models for a clearinghouse concerning Germany; and (5) proposals for future actions, including the planning of conferences on cultural literacy and eurocentrism and a conference on the interface between foreign language instruction and social studies. A list of participants and a conference schedule are included. (DB)
