Kister, Joanna; Montgomery, Wanda
This teaching guide provides materials on how to implement a global education curriculum into the home economics program. The stated objective is to motivate students to become more caring and responsible citizens of the global village. Contents include a list of student objectives, steps to take in implementing the global view curriculum, and sources of instructional materials. The curriculum orientation is also discussed. The problem orientation approach is described, and suggestions are made on how to approach the problem-solving process. Both a student pretest and teacher self-assessment form are provided. Other contents of the guide include recommended teaching strategies and techniques, suggestions for introducing an issue with the students, and suggested activities to help students learn about people in developing countries. The creation of a culture kit--a resource that the teacher develops--is detailed. The guide concludes with a list of "links" to make for help and resources. Celebration of world days, linkage with others in service projects, and background readings are suggested. (YLB)
