Teaching about the World: Teacher Education Programs with a Global Perspective.
Merryfield, Merry
This directory is designed to provide information about teacher education programs in the United States that prepare secondary social studies teachers to teach with a global perspective. The document will be useful to persons who are interested in the movement for global perspectives in education including: preservice students and their advisers, classroom teachers, school system personnel, teacher educators, and other educators. Divided into two parts, the first part profiles individual programs outlining such information as the conceptualization of global education, program descriptions, services, special strengths, achievements, and financial aid. The second part of the directory discusses the characteristics of the programs as they relate to a growing literature on global education. Its purpose is to synthesize what teacher educators say they are doing and to reflect upon these programs as part of a movement toward global perspectives in K-12 education in the United States. A 49-item list of references is included, as well as appendices that list respondents who helped to identify global programs and questions asked of program personnel. (Author/DB)
