376 pages • 7½ x 9¼
In today's globally connected world, it is essential for students to have an understanding of multiple cultures and perspectives. This edited collection brings together 14 educators who use global children's literature to help students explore their own cultural identities. The book lays out why this kind of global curriculum is important and how to make space for it. Built around a stable curriculum framework, the ideas and strategies in Teaching Globally will help teachers integrate a global focus into existing curricula, evaluate global resources, guide students as they investigate cross-cultural issues, and create classroom activities with an inter-cultural perspective.
