Worldways: Bringing the World into the Classroom.
Elder, Pamela; Carr, Mary Ann
Educators today face a growing responsibility: the more complex and interdependent the world becomes, the greater the student's need for skills, tools, and confidence with which to face the future. Global education is a response to this need. Global education is not a new subject to be taught but rather an approach to all the subjects, a vital perspective for the total curriculum. This volume offers a wide range of learning activities encompassing most areas of the curriculum and providing an approach for developing global awareness at the upper elementary to lower secondary levels. The activities are designed to use materials readily available to classroom teachers. Because of the emphasis on worldwide cultures, many activities could be useful in the teaching of foreign languages or of English as a second language. Guidelines for teaching are offered in much the same way that recipes offer guidelines for cooking. Blackline masters required for selected activities are included. A 54-page resources section describes books, periodicals, curriculum materials, and organizations useful to those interested in developing global learning experiences for their students. (BZ)
