Teaching Globally: Reading the World through Literature

Research output: Book/ReportBook


With the world visibly present in students' lives through technology, mass and social medias, economic interdependency, and global mobility, it is more important than ever to develop curriculum that is intercultural. In Teaching Globally: Reading the World Through Literature, a community of educators show us how to use global children's literature to help students explore their own cultural identities. Edited by Kathy Short, Deanna Day, and Jean Schroder, this book explains why global curriculum is important and how you can make space for it within district and state school mandates. Teaching Globally is built around a curriculum framework developed by Short and can 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. Filled with vignettes from K-8 urban, suburban, and rural schools that describe successes and struggles, Teaching Globally aims to integrate global literature into classrooms and challenge students to understand and accept those different from themselves. The book also includes extensive lists of recommendations, websites, professional books, and an appendix of global text sets as mentioned by the authors.
