Global Studies Conference (Groton School, Groton, Massachusetts, June 11-13, 1976).
Global Development Studies Inst., Millbrook, NY.
This workshop provided a meeting place for 35 secondary-school educators and resource leaders to share concerns, ideas, methodologies, and content in the teaching of global studies. The purpose was to bring together teachers from the social science and natural science departments to develop plans to integrate their respective departments for the teaching of global issues. Six goals for global studies were identified along with recommendations and suggestions for further action. The case study method was recommended as being particularly useful when focusing on topics such as food and energy. These four areas of common concern were recognized: skills and content, methodology, resources and materials, and obstacles to the planning and introduction of a new course. The document concludes with a list of conference papers, conference participants, and resource persons. The conference agenda is also included. (Author/DB)
