Summary

Teaching the Global Dimension specifically responds to concerns such as inequality, justice, environment and conflict in chapters written by leading educationalists in the field. It explores both the theory and practice of ‘global education’ today and provides:

  • a framework for understanding global issues
  • a model identifying the key elements of good practice
  • insight into young people’s concerns for the world and the future
  • tried and tested strategies for handling controversial global issues more confidently in the classroom
  • key concepts for planning appropriate learning experiences
  • a range of case studies which demonstrate the different ways in which a global dimension can be developed.

Inspiring, thought-provoking and highly practical, this book shows how teachers at any stage in their career can effectively and successfully bring a global dimension to the taught curriculum.
