Teaching Global Citizenship: A Canadian Perspective
Bringing together perspectives from former and current teachers from across Canada to tackle the unique challenges surrounding educating for global awareness, Teaching Global Citizenship discusses strategies for encouraging young people to cultivate a sense of agency and global responsibility. Reflecting on the educator’s experience, each chapter engages with critical questions surrounding teaching global citizenship, such as how to help students understand and navigate the tension at the heart of global citizenship between universalism and pluralism, and how to do so without frightening, regressing, mythicizing, imposing, or colonizing.
Based on narrative inquiry, the contributors convey their insights through stories from their classroom experiences, which take place in diverse educational settings: from New Brunswick to British Columbia to Nunavut, in rural and urban areas, and in public and private schools.
