Implementing Global Perspectives into Local School Districts.
An outline of procedures is presented for those considering the introduction of global perspectives into the school curriculum. Global education should be defined and criteria established. The curriculum development process then involves identification of objectives, grade levels, and subject areas where global education will be taught, of teachers who will be involved, and of resources to be used. The implementation process that follows includes budgeting of time, money, and personnel, as well as the establishment of a model program and teacher workshops. Two approaches to implementation are suggested: (1) the course of study may replace or act as an option to a world course already used; (2) global education may be infused into existing courses. The success of the program depends upon how well the global education curriculum relates to the established skills being taught in the school system. A bibliography and list of global education organizations are included. (BY)
