Planning Curriculum in International Education




No. 3033, 2002, 342 pp.

Never has there been a better time for teachers to examine critically their curriculum for its global content and inclusion of world and multicultural issues. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s curriculum planning guide Planning Curriculum in International Education offers teachers of all levels and all subjects assistance in “internationalizing” their schools, classrooms, and curriculum.

Teachers throughout Wisconsin contributed descriptions of model programs, valued resources, and activities in global studies. Sample activities draw from Wisconsin’s Model Academic Standards in 18 different curriculum areas. To deal with often controversial issues, the guide assists teachers in setting rules for balanced, fair, and safe discussions and presentations.

It takes more than teachers and students to internationalize a curriculum, however. Planning Curriculum in International Education suggests ways that teacher training institutions, parents, school boards, administrators, area businesses and community organizations can contribute as well.
