Global Thinking. Teacher's Resource Guide.
Hassard, Jack; Weisberg, Julie
The teaching materials contained in this teacher's guide provide a framework for teachers in different cultures to engage their students in collaborative projects. The guide is divided into five parts. Part 1 introduces the Global Thinking Project. Three chapters provide an overview of the project, step-by-step procedures on using collaborative learning, and procedures on using telecommunications in the classroom. Part 2 engages students in a series of projects in which students will be part of a Global Community of about 10 schools world-wide. Part 3 contains three projects from which the class chooses one to work on during phase 2 of the school year together with other schools to form a global community. The projects include Project Solid Waste, Project Water Watch, and Project Ozone. Part 4 contains the project Earthmonth. During the months of March and April, students identify, prepare, carryout, and report on a local project that has global implications. Part 5 contains three appendices: Global Thinking Resources, Extension Activities, and a Student/Journal/Log. (MDH)
