Intercultural Social Studies Project. [And] Appendix A: A Pedagogical Framework for Global Cultural Studies. Final Report.
Oswald, James M.
A report of the second and final year of the Intercultural Social Studies Project for Secondary Schools is presented. The project maintained a culture studies network of 103 teachers and their students from June 1972 to August 1974. Major activities and accomplishments included the design of more than 100 Fieldstaff Perspectives in booklet, photograph, map, and simulation games form as well as field testing within the project network. Materials were prepared to meet a variety of reading ability levels, conceptual comprehension levels, and interest levels. Staff leadership resulted in production and testing of materials, workshops for culture studies teachers, articles in professional journals and newsletters, and a model pedagogical framework for studying cultures. The appended framework for global cultural studies contains objectives for the Project and explains the assumptions for implementation of the inquiry-based instructional materials organized into multimedia units. SO 007 984 contains appendices with representative examples of project field test materials, project newsletters, participant application forms, and lists of participants, participant and evaluator responses, project policy committee members, project evaluators, and project staff.
