Be That Nosy Neighbor!

During the summer of 2016, I was flying home from a trip to Ireland, Scotland, and England with my family.  During the last leg of the flight home, we were separated, and I was saddened that I wouldn’t be able to spend this time with the people that lovingly drove me crazy over the last two weeks.  That frown quickly turned to an excited smile when I glanced at the open computer next to me and realized what my seatmate was working on.  She was typing away enthusiastically about global curriculum, so I, of course, had to be that nosy neighbor.  She was in the process of writing a book on implementing global education into the classroom!  We talked for the rest of the flight, met again at the ISTE conference in Denver, and yet again at a Global Ed conference in Philly.  Needless to say, the second her book was published, I bought a copy and cannot put it down.  You do not have to be a teacher or an administrator to read this; you simply just have to have an interest in, well, humanity!  Check out this book, The Global Education Guidebook: Humanizing K-12 Classrooms Worldwide Through Equitable Partnerships, by Jennifer Klein.
