Internationalizing school curriculum: A university-charter school partnership

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Public schools serve as the state’s primary apparatus for fashioning democratic citizens. Formal schooling is how students are transformed into responsible participants of the nation and world. Because most American students identify their teachers and schools as the main source of their information about the world, greater attention must be given to incorporating global knowledge, cultural awareness, and cross-cultural sensitivity in teacher education due to the globalized context in which we now live. Using a conceptual framework derived from Appadurai’s (1996) notion of ethnoscape, this paper examines—through the lens of liberation theory—the results of a university-charter school partnership to internationalize and integrate classroom lessons with academic, arts, and cultural (A/A/C) dimensions. The Center for International Comparative Education (ICE) at Bowling Green State University collaborated with Toledo School for the Arts (TSA) to infuse classroom lessons with cultural perspectives. As a process, the curriculum effort at Ohio’s leading charter school has fostered a culture of teacher and student engagement. The goal of this research paper is to highlight best practices for dissemination to and careful implementation at other schools. Qualitative findings via classroom observations reveal student excitement and participation in learning and the important role that teachers play in connecting lesson concepts to real life. The findings of this research study (involving qualitative methodology, dimensions of pedagogy and practice, teacher education, and innovative methods of student participation) reveal that engagement of students and teachers in libratory pedagogy is central to a transformative educational experience that liberates.
