Educating the Global Village: Including the Child in the World

For Early Childhood Education courses in Multicultural Issues and Social Studies. The second edition of this internationally focused text offers current and future teachers the theories and techniques they need to face the challenge of addressing global concerns, issues, and needs in the twenty-first century classroom. Coverage is based on the authors' theme of unity in diversity, and encompasses twelve research-based principles that serve as a framework for bringing both global and multicultural education to preschool and school-age children. Around these principles, the authors build a broad-based set of teaching strategies that are inclusive of children with a wide range of learning styles and that can be effectively used in such diverse venues as childcare and community centers, schools...even home-schooling situations.
