Reading the World Through Literature
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 as they inquire into global cultures.
The book lays out why this kind of global curriculum is important and how to make space for it within regional 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 humanities and social sciences curriculum, evaluate global resources, guide students as they investigate cross-cultural issues and create classroom activities with an intercultural perspective.
Teaching Globally is filled with vignettes from F–8 urban and rural schools that describe successes and struggles, as well as real examples of students responding to global literature. Extensive lists of book recommendations, websites and professional books, as well as an appendix of global text sets mentioned by the authors, complete this must-have resource.
