Influence, Effectiveness and Language Policy A Political Action Workshop by Karen Lee McGuinness( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A model is provided for a political action workshop to educate individuals in the political process and productive participation. The workshop begins with a quiz designed to make the participant recognize the inadequacy of his political involvement and of political involvement in the country in general. A segment on the legislative and policy process includes an outline of the development of a piece of legislation, discussion of the political nature of the process, study of the budget process, and examination of other impact points, such as appointments, regulations, and elections. An exercise follows that has participants analyze a specific piece of legislation, examine the importance and effects of mail in the process, and write a letter intended to influence the course of the legislation. A segment on affecting legislation considers the roles of these elements: information, action, organization, knowledge, and involvement. A concluding, organizational segment on building a network discusses identifying specific political needs, looking at the record, building networks, and beginning action. In this stage, participants are encouraged to make specific commitments to action. Worksheets for various segments of the workshop are appended. (MSE)
State and Federal Initiative in Support of Foreign Languages and International Studies by J. David Edwards( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the persistent possibility that foreign languages and international studies may become lost in the current federal policy of fiscal restraint, the immediate public policy context for these areas is guardedly optimistic. Recent years have produced increased media attention, growing public support, and professional unity and organization. These factors have translated into improved and new policies, increased legislation, and major policy changes in the states. The 98th Congress has produced increased funding for Soviet and East European research and training, grants for library foreign language acquisitions, funds for international diplomacy and conflict resolution research, and teacher training support. While foreign languages are a stepchild in the legislation, previously they were simply absent. Several initiatives either were introduced too late or they languished in the legislature, but they will be reintroduced. In the most recent budget, although foreign languages were again zero-funded, support for strengthening their status exists. The challenge is for the profession to sustain its efforts to protect existing programs and funding and to keep the current favorable public attitude toward language study alive. (Mse)
Reform or Recidivism Languages' Future by J. David Edwards( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brief report discusses the future of language education in light of recent actions taken by the 104th Congress, driven by the "Contract with America," to balance the budget and eliminate the deficit. Such actions challenge federal funding for education reform, Goals 2000, and content standards. It is concluded that after a decade of growth and success culminating in the inclusion of foreign languages in the "core" subject areas of Goals 2000, but also evidenced in the Foreign Language Assistance Act, the National Security Act, the new International Education Act, increased educational exchanges in the United States Information Agency, more support for foreign languages in the National Endowment for the Humanities, and a fourfold increase for foreign languages in higher education, languages could easily find themselves back in the situation of the 1970s when they received little attention.

International Dimensions of Education Documents of State Education Agencies by Fred R Czarra( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document provides chief state school officers, international education coordinators, and their colleagues with a state by state listing of documents designed to assist public schools in bringing an international perspective into their curricula. These publications are a result of the 1985 position paper (ED 291 649) of the Council of Chief State School Officers that focuses on four areas: (1) communication skills; (2) international education; (3) cross national comparisons of educational data; and (4) exchange of educational practices. The documents listed in this publication illustrate a wide range of resources related to the themes in the position paper. They include international education documents demonstrating how to integrate international education into the K-12 curriculum, world language guides to assist local school systems in teaching second languages, manuals for exchange programs with other nations, curriculum guides on specific nations, and state mandates for global/international studies and courses, as well as state task force reports on international education. These documents also reflect survey responses from a 1992 survey of state international education coordinators that illustrates the progress that has been made since the study commission, as well as the strong efforts needed to have an internationally literate society in the 21st century. This directory is organized alphabetically by states and extra-state jurisdictions. Each entry provides the name, address, and telephone number of the international education coordinator, followed by the state documents that relate to international education. The documents are characterized by five categories: (1) curriculum; (2) policies; (3) publications; (4) projects, programs; and (5) videos. (DK)
