Developing Curriculum for Democracy through International Partnerships. ERIC Digest.
Hamot, Gregory E.
The fall of communism in eastern and central Europe inspired the call for curriculum development in citizenship education throughout the growing democratic world. Many programs between U.S. institutions and newly developing democracies continue to produce curricula for democratic citizenship suited to local needs. This digest discusses: (1) examples and outcomes of such partnerships; (2) four practical guidelines taken from these partnerships that support successful international curriculum development; and (3) resources for understanding existing programs or launching similar ones. Lists 13 references and ERIC resources. (BT)
