Leader's Handbook for World Education in the Classroom.
Epstein, Irving; Garvey, Helen
This handbook accompanies two inservice programs designed for elementary and secondary teachers who want to incorporate a world education thrust in their curricula. The first inservice program, "Making a Commitment," attempts to help participants come to an agreement as to what they mean when they speak of their world education program. It identifies a focus and sets parameters. The second program, "Charting a Course," helps educators examine four different methods for implementing world education in their school. Participants are encouraged to agree on one approach or a combination of approaches. These inservice programs have two major components. A television presentation provides input for the workshop. This handbook, the second component, gives guidance for active participation in the workshop and for planning programs. The handbook contains directions for conducting the sessions and background information for the participants. Included are suggestions for classroom activities, inservice evaluation sheets, and descriptions of curricular approaches. The appendices, which comprise half of the handbook, include a reprint of a journal article on world education, a review of selected school based global education programs, an evaluation instrument, the script of the TV program and an annotated listing of selected resources.
