- Publisher's Summary
- In a world that is increasingly interconnected, it is important for students in the United States to develop an understanding and appreciation for the history, culture, and traditions of their peers in other nations. Connecting Across Cultures: Grades K-8 offers educators a roadmap to global education with proven, practical ways to modify the curriculum to prepare students to be contributing members of the global village. There are practical suggestions for all curriculum areas that will provide teachers with examples of how their subject area can move toward a more global approach. It's not adding more to an already full schedule; it's changing what happens in the classroom to increase student understanding and challenge attitudes and assumptions they have about other nations, cultures, and traditions. It points the way to forming friendships with students around the world.
