Kobus, Doni Kwolek; Rojas, Mary Hill
Focusing upon the need for gender-balance in global education and the need to develop strategies that affect teaching materials, teacher training, and school curricula, the first section of this report describes how the conference was conceived and planned, lists overall objectives, and notes the general character of the participants. The second section is a collection of insights, questionnaire responses, and recommendations. Four appendices conclude the document. Appendix A lists conference participants and their affiliations. Appendix B gives criteria for evaluating the inclusion of women in global education curricula and programs, and includes a sample critique, applying the criteria to a particular global education curriculum. Five skill and concept areas for teachers and students are discussed. Appendix C, which lists sources of information for teaching about women, is an annotated list of 28 publications and organizations. A selected bibliography of 16 items appears as Appendix D. (AS)
