Reading Globally, K-8
The authors make the case for why it is necessary to be globally literate and multiculturally aware in today's shrinking world, and they provide the tools teachers need to incorporate appropriate reading selections into elementary and middle school classrooms. By using books from or about other countries, teachers empower students to view the world in a more positive manner, enriching and broadening their students' lives, and ultimately preparing them for life in a global economy and culture. This reader-friendly resource guides teachers and reading program coordinators in selecting quality books for their classrooms, incorporating global literature into different content areas, and facilitating the discussions that follow.
