Tonight, while leafing through my disintegrating childhood copy of Richard Scarry's Busy, Busy World
now beloved by my own children, I had an idea. Perhaps this has been done elsewhere, but I thought it would be useful to compile a list of books around global education for both adults and children. Wouldn't it be great to have a list of children's books that might be helpful when studying other cultures , journal articles for administrators contemplating 21st Century teaching and learning initiatives, or a compilation of curriculum resources for world language teachers? I could expand on the possibilities, but I imagine you can all think of the kinds of bibliographies you'd like to see.
This idea led me to the perfect summer project for Global Education Collaborative members. Take a few minutes and add YOUR selections to this Google form
. Fill it in as best you can; if you don't know all the publication information, that's fine. Then, check out the list as it grows in this "">Google spreadsheet
. You can even download it and sort it as needed for your own personal use. I've added a few entries just to get started, so the list is not long yet, but stay tuned as GEC members contribute to this project.
Let me know if you have any questions!
