Global Education: Instructional Strategies Used and Challenges Faced by In-Service Teachers
Eslami, Zohreh R.
Teacher Education and Practice, v18 n4 p400-415 Fall 2005
This article examines the result of a study on teachers' reported use of instructional strategies in dealing with the U.S.-Iraq war, the resources that they use, the challenges that they face in implementing a globally oriented curriculum, and the sources of influence on their commitment to global education. A questionnaire was developed and used as the main method of data collection in this study. Analysis of the data showed that teachers did not promote awareness of other perspectives in their classrooms. Only one dominant perspective on war, reflecting strong patriotism, was being promoted in the classrooms. Teachers faced several challenges in implementing globally oriented curriculum. The results strongly suggest that to be able to critically examine various perspectives on different issues and foster understanding among people, global dimensions should be included in teacher education programs.
