International Dimensions of Education: Documents of State Education Agencies.
Czarra, Fred; Edwards, J. David
This document provides chief state school officers, international education coordinators, and their colleagues with a state by state listing of documents designed to assist public schools in bringing an international perspective into their curricula. These publications are a result of the 1985 position paper (ED 291 649) of the Council of Chief State School Officers that focuses on four areas: (1) communication skills; (2) international education; (3) cross national comparisons of educational data; and (4) exchange of educational practices. The documents listed in this publication illustrate a wide range of resources related to the themes in the position paper. They include international education documents demonstrating how to integrate international education into the K-12 curriculum, world language guides to assist local school systems in teaching second languages, manuals for exchange programs with other nations, curriculum guides on specific nations, and state mandates for global/international studies and courses, as well as state task force reports on international education. These documents also reflect survey responses from a 1992 survey of state international education coordinators that illustrates the progress that has been made since the study commission, as well as the strong efforts needed to have an internationally literate society in the 21st century. This directory is organized alphabetically by states and extra-state jurisdictions. Each entry provides the name, address, and telephone number of the international education coordinator, followed by the state documents that relate to international education. The documents are characterized by five categories: (1) curriculum; (2) policies; (3) publications; (4) projects, programs; and (5) videos. (DK)
