Internationalizing Your School: A Handbook and Resource Guide for Teachers, Administrators, Parents and School Board Members.
Rosengren, Frank H.; And Others
During the past 10 years, an abundance of evidence has been published about the need in the United States for knowledge of other nations and peoples and about the low levels of American international understanding. This evidence supports placing greater emphasis on international studies and foreign languages in the elementary and secondary grades. This handbook provides some of the rationale for developing international education and foreign language programs, statements to support the task, answers to key questions, a sample of model programs, consideration of problems, and some of the important resources available. It also gives suggestions for specific plans of action. The model programs outlined are for K-2, K through elementary, middle schools, and secondary schools, as well as three specialized programs and projects. Resources on foreign languages and on international education cover organizations, publications, audiovisual resources, directories and guides, resource centers, and a guide to overseas work and international studies programs for both students and teachers.
