This is a paper from the American Forum of Global Education titled "Global Education Checklist for Teachers, Schools, School Systems and State Education Agencies," by Fred Czarra. The document is a foundation and checklist of practical tool that teachers, curriculum developers, school administrators, and state education agency staff can use to gauge their global/international work. Mr. Fed Czarra states the study of the world can be divided into three main themes: global issues, global culture, and global connections. These three themes cross all academic disciplines—geography, history, world languages, health, the sciences and the arts and identify essential ideas that should be pursued through questions that relate to the daily life of students. I found this resource very useful when trying to decide where I was with global education in my classroom and where I would go with it. I found pages 5 and 6 very useful - Questions about Schools for Principals,Teachers and Community Leaders.
