Educating Citizens for Global Awareness

Edited by Nel Noddings
Developed by the Boston Research Center for the 21st Century (now the Ikeda Center for Peace, Learning, and Dialogue)
Published by Teachers College Press, 2005


Edited by educator-philosopher Nel Noddings, Educating Citizens for Global Awareness gathers perspectives from eight prominent educators who propose new ways to foster international understanding in K-12 classrooms and integrate the perspectives of diverse cultures into the curriculum. The chapters address a range of issues including gender, conflict resolution, place-based education, religion, internationalism, and more.

"Noddings' book is a refreshing read. Unlike some edited volumes it successfully navigates the tensions between covering conceptual ground and maintaining coherence. Across the board the short chapters are well written, conceptually rich, and practice-based. Though each chapter certainly stands alone, a picture of what the work of educating students for global citizenship looks like arises from the chapters viewed together."
-Ethan Lowenstein, Teachers College Record
