Perspectives of Global Education: A Sourcebook for Classroom Teachers.
Muessig, Raymond H., Ed.; Gilliom, M. Eugene, Ed.
This sourcebook for pre- and in-service teachers suggests global perspectives as an ongoing theme for education. Two underlying assumptions are that people need a global perspective because the survival and collective well-being of all depends upon it, and that professional educators are responsible for integrating global perspectives into the curriculum in ways which help students organize their comprehension of ideas, things, and people and to see holistic relationships. Three major areas are addressed to broaden educator's understandings of global education and its applications: (1) definitions for global perspectives and the need for them in general and global education curricula; (2) global education from humanistic, historical, geographical, political, economical, anthropological, and scientific and technological perspectives; and (3) an overview of instructional methods and materials for global education.
