The Acceptance of Global Education Scale.
Bingham, Jane
The Acceptance of Global Education Scale (AGES) measures the attitudes of secondary social studies teachers toward goal statements for the social studies curriculum that reflect a global perspective. AGES can be used in inservice and preservice teacher training programs to form guidelines for construction of a secondary global education curriculum. The scale incorporates current perceptions of global education into ten goal statements for each of five world order tenets: reduction of violence, economic equality, ecological balance, social justice, and political participation. The scale also contains ten non-global statements taken from traditional objectives for social studies instruction. Respondents are asked to sort all 60 statements into six categories from "most approved" to"most disapproved." An example of a statement reflecting social justice is: "Students should critically examine textbooks, curriculum materials, and periodicals for bias in national and international affairs." The document includes directions to respondents, a response sheet, the 60 goal statements, and an explanation for ranking responses. (Author/AV)
