Global Education-An Implementation Plan & Resource Guide.
This guide contains a rationale, plan, and bibliography for the implementation of a K-12, district wide, global education program. Parts one and two of the guide provide a definition of and rationale for global education. Global education is defined as the lifelong growth in understanding, through study and participation, of the world community and the interdependency of its peoples and systems--ecological, social, economic, and technological. The rationale provided is taken from a statement by Rene Dubos, 1969 Pulitzer Prize recipient. Part two outlines specific goals of global education. How to implement a program is the topic of part three. A self-assessment program instrument is included. Suggested steps for starting a program are: get administrative support, identify a staff, carry out needs assessment, review guidelines, prepare professional staff, locate existing resources, and develop a model program. Activities for classroom use in various disciplines are then outlined. The guide suggests that physical education teachers utilize games from different countries in their classes and that music teachers teach students about the musical instruments from around the world. A geography unit entitled "Could You Live and Work in a Country Other Than Your Own?" is described. An annotated bibliography, which comprises about half the publication, concludes the guide. Cited are teacher resources and print and nonprint student materials. The materials listed date back to 1973. (Author/RM)
