Maine's Approach to Global Education.
Broyles, India L.; Krawic, Joanne
This study of Maine schools inquires into efforts that have been made to internationalize the curriculum. Specifically, the researchers were interested in how curricular goals and organization contribute to an understanding of global society. The efforts to internationalize the curriculum upon which the researchers focused included the organizational factors: (1) time allotment; (2) teacher involvement; (3) relationship to other subjects or disciplines; and (4) scope of focus on other countries/themes. Five widely accepted goals of global education also guided the research: (1) to learn about the culture and customs of other countries; (2) to address global problems; (3) to compare the similarities and differences the world's peoples share; (4) to analyze international organizations and national, state, and city governments; and (5) to focus on the interrelatedness of human beings. The frequency and range of foreign languages included in the curriculum are described including a comparison of intent--exploration versus proficiency. A Survey was conducted of all Maine schools, both public and private. A 22-item list of references is included. (DB)
