International education begins at home, in the very communities and environments most familiar to students. A student does not need to travel outside U.S. borders to meet the peoples or understand the issues of the global village. This planning guide shows how curriculum in all subject areas encompasses global challenges, global cultures, and global connections. The guide is based on work taking place in Wisconsin classrooms and takes its lead from Wisconsin's Model Academic Standards. Wisconsin's heritage cultures are part of the fabric of the guide, and they weave their way through all its chapters. Following introductory information, the guide is divided into eight chapters: (1) "Defining International Education: What Is It? Why Is It Important?"; (2) "Organizing International Education"; (3) "Teaching International Education: Strategies and Check Lists"; (4) "Connecting International Education to the Standards"; (5) "Building International Programs in Our Schools"; (6) "Viewing International Education in Wisconsin: A Sampler of 35 Exemplary Programs"; (7) "Resources for International Education"; and (8) "Appendices for International Education" (n=6).
