Editorial Reviews

Review

In The Global School, William Kist provides 21st century educators with an essential road map for how to incorporate global learning into the classroom. Ideas, projects, lesson plans, resources, and assessments are all included, making this a tremendously valuable text. Once again, Kist profiles teachers who are leading the charge in engaging their students in critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and more. This is a book for everyone from the superintendent to the classroom teacher. If you've previously heard about ''global knowledge'' and didn t know what it was, then The Global School will provide the answer. I can see it on the professional bookshelf of every school; it will come in handy for years to come. --Frank W. Baker, Media Literacy Clearinghouse, Inc., Columbia, South Carolina

A must-read for any teacher interested in connecting his or her classroom to the world. The Global School highlights key trends in education, alongside interesting interviews with innovative educators around the world and practical project ideas that can be implemented immediately. From the pedagogical foundation to the practical steps for implementation, this book contains all the resources you need to take your classroom global! --Kim Cofino, Technology and Learning Coach, Yokohama International School, Japan
