Education Week writes, "Connect your students to the world with Teaching Globally. You'll get specific strategies on how to use children's literature to help students explore their own cultural identities in both ELA and social studies. Includes extensive book recommendations, online resources, and strategies for classroom dialogue."
"In today’s globally connected world, it is essential for students to have an understanding of multiple cultures and perspectives. In this edited collection, Kathy Short, Deanna Day, and Jean Schroeder bring together fourteen educators who use global children’s literature to help students explore their own cultural identities." continues Stenhouse Publishers.
The book lays out why this kind of global curriculum is important and how to make space for it within district and state mandates. Built around a curriculum framework developed by Kathy, the ideas and strategies in Teaching Globally will help teachers integrate a global focus into existing literacy and social studies curricula, evaluate global resources, guide students as they investigate cross-cultural issues, and create classroom activities with an intercultural perspective.
