Global Education: Why? For Whom? About What?
Alger, Chadwick F.; Harf, James E.
Human beings can not have a fulfilling life on this planet without global education. All educators, whatever their field, have a role to play in global education. An adequate understanding of the global relationship can be obtained by focusing on five chosen themes: values, transactions, actors, procedures, and mechanisms. Each of these themes offers a window of opportunity for grasping a piece of the essential nature of the globe. Together, these themes represent a coherent foundation for global understanding that can lead to thoughtful participation. (CB)
