Teaching toward Global Understanding and Action.
Ryan, James, Ed.
The militarization of our planet and the increasing evidence of hunger, poverty, and social unrest pose serious challenges for future generations. Educators have a responsibility to educate for international peace and justice. The materials in this teaching guide are designed to bring a new perspective to the classroom using an infusion methodology. This methodology, which enables global values and concepts to be taught as part of the regular lessons, is discussed, the concepts to be taught (human rights, interdependence, and empowerment.) are described, and examples of infused lesson plans are given. Five activity sheets are included that present a narrative introducing a child from a different developing country and describing their life. The concepts to be taught are indicated, the purpose is given, and background information about the country is provided. This information is followed by learning activities for various grade levels. Each activity sheet is accompanied by a poster. A 19-item resource bibliography is included as well as a list of 27 resource organizations. (JB)
