At 4-year intervals since 1950, the United Nations has requested its Member States to review and report what schools, colleges, and adult organizations have been doing to make known the work of international organizations. The present U.S. report for 1960-1963 is a chronicle of the many steps toward peace taken by individuals, organizations, school systems, and other components of the Nation, including: (1) Teaching about the United Nations in Colleges and Universities (Harold A. Haswell); (2) Relating Teacher Education to the United Nations (John B. Whitelaw); (3) Emphasis on the United Nations in Adult Education Programs (Roy B. Minnis and Betty Ward); (4) Contributions of New Educational Media to Learning about the United Nations (Gertrude G. Frederick); (5) Libraries as Centers of Information on the United Nations (Mary Helen Mahar); (6) Resource Materials on the United Nations for School Programs (Lois B. Watt); and (7) Teaching about the United Nations in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools (Wilhelmina Hill). The present report demonstrates that, in a variety of ways and in many places, U.S. education is responding to the challenge of international organization in imaginative and increasingly effective ways. The ideas and activities reported here may serve to stimulate teachers and other leaders to improve and intensify their work in the international sphere. (Contains 57 footnotes.)
