Fostering Global Citizenship
Realizing the need for more global citizens is not the same as knowing how to guide students to become global citizens. There are classes on world history, current events, foreign languages, etc. Organizing and presenting the content to study different cultures seems easy enough. Thoughtful educators, seeking ways to foster global citizenship, realize that there is a more important question. Can content alone help students develop cross-cultural communication skills, preparing them to excel in our ever-globalizing world?
