The second edition of this internationally focused book 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. A three-part organization examines the continuing need for global education, the inclusion of diverse learners, and the implementation of a global education curriculum. For practicing and future teachers seeking the necessary theories and techniques to face the challenge of addressing global concerns, issues, and needs in the twenty-first century classroom.
