Educating students about their roles as “global citizens” is a challenge that has taken on increasing importance in recent years. In this volume, prominent educators join Nel Noddings to address the issue of global citizenship, what it means, and how it should shape curriculum and teaching in K–12 classrooms.
Nel Noddings is Lee Jacks Professor of Education, Emerita, at Stanford University. Her books include Education and Democracy in the 21st Century, When School Reform Goes Wrong, The Challenge to Care in Schools, Educating Citizens for Global Awareness, Educating for Intelligent Belief or Unbelief, and Educating Moral People.
“In these critical times, this book provides irrefutable evidence about the importance of teaching tolerance and citizenship for global awareness and unity.”
;Nadine Strossen, President, American Civil Liberties Union, and Professor of Law, New York Law School
“A splendid book….offers powerful strategies for incorporating themes of global citizenship into the curriculum, but also leaves plenty of room for managing the unique educational contexts that teachers face on a daily basis. It will doubtless prove an invaluable resource for anyone interested in educational philosophy.”
— Larry Hickman, Director, Center for Dewey Studies, Southern Illinois University
