Internationalization in the Classroom focuses on what it means to internationalize K-12 and higher education classrooms. Through a yearlong study, the authors developed methods of internationalizing curricula, pedagogy, and assessments to explore how globalizing a classroom can impact positively students. The educators featured in the volume found that learning with regard to knowledge, culture, and language skills deepened within an internationalized classroom. In each chapter, authors focus on providing practical suggestions for school leaders and educators interested in transforming their schools and classrooms into places where all students can feel welcome, all students can learn, and global differences are addressed and shared in order to capitalize on the richness of students’ various cultures and backgrounds. Moving beyond traditional views of multicultural education to an emphasis on international perspectives, this book develops local notions of race and class into global understandings of cultures, religions, and language.
