Hosting Foreign Visitors in the Classroom: A Checklist.
Gorsuch, Marjorie; And Others
A classroom visit by an international visitor is potentially a unique educational experience. Students have an opportunity to: increase awareness of their own values and of their foundation in the sociocultural patterns of their natural family, community, and nation; increase capacity for empathetic interpersonal relations; and become aware of global issues that affect entire societies and of the interdependence of the world. This checklist is designed to encourage teachers to invite visitors to the classroom, to assist them in making visitors feel welcome, and to maximize the educational value of the experience. Instructions for the organizer of the visit, as well as for the teacher are included. There are guidelines for preparing the class/school for the visit and suggestions for extending the experience beyond the actual meeting. (Author/GEA)
