Globalizing the Curriculum is the design for a workshop for high school history and social studies teachers. The written project includes a description of how the workshop has actually been presented and a discussion of how it may be presented again. This workshop focuses on the following:

1. Why a global approach is important and the goals for taking this approach.

2. Problems and concerns teachers have incorporating a global approach and how these can be overcome.

3. Specific teaching strategies for globalizing the curriculum.

4. Resources available for global studies and how to access them.
