Shaping the Curriculum in Global Education: The Influence of Student Characteristics on Teacher Decision Making.
Merryfield, Merry M.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v9 n3 p233-49 Spr 1994
Describes a year-long study exploring how student characteristics shaped their teachers' instructional decision making in world-history/global-education classes. Teachers were sensitive to racial, ethnic, religious, or gender differences; linked content to students' local environment; were concerned about gaps in student understanding and experience; expanded on topics capturing students' interest or curiosity; and shortened coverage on "boring" topics.
