One only need to look inside the cover at the ten ways the book can be used to know that a long-awaited answer to desperately needed curricular and pedagogical changes in the new global world order has arrived. Thank you.
Tavangar and Morales nail it by offering clever, economical, and practical suggestions to merge traditional academic content with desperately needed global competency skills in our curriculum. Not a book to be read, pondered, then shelved, but rather a manual to be open on the teacher’s desk at all times.
I need this now."(Robert M. Hollister, Ed.D., Superintendent)
"This book is a gift to educators with heartfelt, rigorous, and creative strategies to make the shift from the last century to the now. Tavangar and Mladic-Morales have shaped an organized, dynamic, and thoughtful series of both classic and digital approaches to personalizing the global for our learners."(Heidi Hayes Jacobs, President)
