Management Inst. for National Development, New York, NY.; Massachusetts Univ., Amherst.
The conference report of the Global Studies Workshop held in Amherst, Massachusetts, May 16-17, 1975 is presented. The workshop provided a meeting place for educators from both the secondary and college levels to share concerns, ideas, and techniques in the teaching of global studies. Two key questions were addressed throughout the workshop concerned with the goals of a global studies course and the issues, concepts, and problems which such a course should address. Four goals for global studies were identified along with recommendations and suggestions for further action. A short narrative is presented on the Amherst interpretations of the sessions, based on the group meetings. The document concludes with a selected list of references, curricula, films, and other resources useful in teaching global studies. A list of conference participants is included in the document.
