Cultural Understanding for Global Citizenship: An Inservice Model.
Ramsey, Clarice M.
In recognition of the still relatively scant attention paid to the importance of global education, a two-week inservice Cultural Understanding Institute was held for public school teachers and allied professionals. The institute utilized a model for such inservice programs that fell into five phases: (1) diagnosis of needs of a wide variety of educational personnel; (2) a brief phase of sensitization to issues (most of which would be familiar to participants beforehand); (3) instruction in cross-cultural understanding, involving a multimedia approach and a wide variety of activities; (4) an application phase in which each state group planned an inservice model for its locality for the following year; and (5) project evaluation based on immediate and long-term results of the institute.
