Teacher's Resource Manual on Worldmindedness: An Annotated Bibliography of Curriculum Materials, Kindergarten through Grade Twelve. Occasional Paper No. 8.
This bibliography lists resource and instructional materials for use by classroom teachers as they design and implement educational programs on worldmindedness. Worldmindedness is characterized as differing from international and/or multicultural education in that it includes a value orientation in addition to knowledge about and interest in international relations. Worldminded individuals are defined as those who are positively disposed to people with other cultural beliefs, perceive commonality in basic needs of all peoples, and develop their individual potential for the benefit of others as well as self. Bibliographic entries are presented in five categories: (1) Farther Reaches of Human Nature, including spiritual dimension, and holistic education; (2) Global Education and Futuristics, including world order, and the United Nations; (3) Interdependence and Global Problems, including development, energy, environment, and food; (4) Peace, including aggression, disarmament, nonviolence, and social justice; and (5) General and Miscellaneous, including cultural awareness for young children, institutional violence, ethnocentrism, and contributions of women throughout history. Entries include books, audiovisual materials, edited volumes, maps, teacher's guides, pamphlets, monographs, games, and religious tracts. For each entry, information is presented on appropriate grade level, title, author, publisher or developer, pagination or size, availability, price, and annotation. Most of the entries were published/produced in the United States between 1975 and 1980. The document concludes with an appendix containing a guide to periodical literature, a listing of resource centers, and opportunities for active student participation. (DB)
