International Learning and International Education in a Global Age. Bulletin 47.
Remy, Richard C.; And Others
The aim of this book is to provide information about international learning and international scholarship which can contribute to improved instruction about the global dimensions of human affairs. The underlying assumption and concern of the book is that if international education is to improve, educators need to be more self-conscious of their own world view of international politics since the objectives teachers set for themselves and their students, the instructional strategies they employ, and the curriculum materials they choose are all conditioned by their images of the world. After an introduction, chapters 2-4 (1) present the research findings on preadult international learning in a concise fashion; (2) delineate frameworks for viewing the world in a way which will assist educators in becoming more self-conscious about the images of the world which underlie their teaching; and (3) consider the problems and issues involved in systematically designing world studies programs that try to take account of preadult international learning and alternative world views. The appendix provides a bibliography on world studies and a set of "Guidelines for World Studies." These guidelines list potential objectives for world studies and include checklists to assist teachers in choosing materials appropriate for their students and community setting. (Author/ND)
