Handbook for Global Education: A Working Manual.
Kinghorn, Jon Rye; Shaw, William P.
The handbook gives step-by-step directions for planning and conducting a five-day workshop in the area of international or global education. Although it is designed for educators of K-12 students, the guide can be adapted for use by leaders of church or other community organizations. The preface stresses that it is essential to have received workshop training before attempting to implement this program. The handbook explains how to organize small working groups which develop "we agree" statements of values and goals. This group concensus approach stresses the importance of setting clearly understood and attainable goals for school or community groups who plan to implement programs of global awareness. Workshop goals include becoming better acquainted with participants, learning to respect others' values, experiencing group dynamics skills and interdisciplinary group planning skills, realizing the impact of global issues on the community and individuals, and establishing a plan for continued study and implementation of global education. Each chapter in the manual explains how to schedule each of the five days during the workshop. Activities include personal introductions, small group discussion of conflicting values and issues, films, role playing, and presentation of exemplary global education materials. The manual includes lists of suggested films, sample goal statements, and readings to facilitate group discussions. (AV)
