The Global Education Guidebook
Humanizing K-12 Classrooms Worldwide Through Equitable PartnershipsBook - 2017
In The Global Education Guidebook: Humanizing K-12 Classrooms Worldwide Through Equitable Partnerships, author Jennifer D. Klein asserts that teachers must give students access to meaningful partnerships with other classrooms around the world. Doing so cultivates the equitable thinking that students need to be empathic, solution-oriented global citizens. PreK-12 teachers and administrators need to foster partnerships that endorse humanity and eschew exoticizing people from other cultures. Klein takes readers through the key strategies for forming globally connected, student-driven educational relationships that benefit students and communities on both sides of the partnership. By purposefully choosing a partner, deciding on a design, employing the right technologies, and being mindful of potential pitfalls, educators around the globe can build communities that prepare all students to thrive in the 21st century.
