Teaching about the United Nations in the United States: 1956-1959 Report. Bulletin, 1960, No. 18. OE-14038
Office of Education, US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare
Every four years the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations requests a report from each Member State telling how the United Nations and its work are being made known to the citizenry. This bulletin constitutes the report of the United States substantially as it was submitted at the close of 1959. Because the Secretary General had expressed particular interest in four aspects of teaching about the United Nations, the Office of Education Committee which drew up the report devoted a section to each one and enlisted the cooperation of teachers and specialists in all parts of the country to supply pertinent information. The main divisions of the report deal with teacher training, programs and syllabi, the treatment of the United Nations in textbooks and teaching materials, and out-of-school educational activities relating to the U.N. system. Following a Foreword, five chapters are included: (1) Introduction; (2) Teacher education and the United Nations; (3) Programs and patterns in teaching about the United Nations; (4) Teaching materials for elementary and secondary schools; and (5) Out-of-School education activities related to the U. N. Two appendices are included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
