Michigan Global/International Education Guidelines.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
This document is designed to provide Michigan school districts with suggestions on how to develop and enhance educational programs to meet the needs of students in an interrelated world. Beyond presenting a definition of global/international education and accompanying concerns, the paper suggests resources and procedures for fostering programs that reflect global/international matters--sociological, technological, environmental, economic, and political. The suggestions are directed at educators concerned with all phases of the curriculum, including social studies, arts education, foreign language, language arts, and science. The guide has four main sections: (1) Definition; (2) Goals; (3) Implementation; and (4) Self-Assessment. Three appendices provide: (1) sugested topics for study; (2) examples of global/international themes for various grade levels; and (3) goals of global/multilingual/multicultural education. A 13-item bibliography is included. (DB)
