The Goshen Project: A Pilot Program in International Education.
Orr, Paul G.; Lee, Leslie L.
This publication reports organizational and procedural activities and some outcomes of the 1967-68 phase of the Goshen Project, and experimental international education program at the Goshen School (1-12) in rural Alabama. Chapter 1 presents background rationale on the concept of international education for fostering understanding of foreign countries, cultures, and their overall relationship to the people and government of the U.S. Chapter 2 traces development of the Goshen Project, a cooperative curriculum development program involving the Alabama State Education Agency; Pike County Schools; Goshen faculty; teachers in the binational schools of Colombia, South America; and selected University of Alabama doctoral students in education. Chapters 3 and 4 summarize activities of the first year and list objectives and suggested activities in international dimensions in nine curriculum areas: reading, Grades 1-3, Grade 6 social studies, high school English, mathematics, home economics, business law, physical education (folk dance), and agriculture. Chapter 5 describes project research regarding change in teacher attitudes toward purposes of education as related to international education. Also included are implications for the second year and for other schools interested in enriching their curriculum through selected dimensions in international education.
