Rethinking Globalization: Teaching for Justice in an Unjust World

Front Cover
Bill Bigelow, Bob Peterson
Rethinking Schools, 2002 - Business & Economics - 394 pages
Rethinking Globalization is the best single-volume source for teaching strategies that will help students make sense of an increasingly complicated and scary world. The book alerts readers to the challenges we face--from child labor to sweatshops, from global warming to destruction of the rain forests--and also spotlights the enormous courage and creativity of people working to set things right. This essential resource includes role plays, interviews, poetry, stories, background readings, and hands-on teaching tools. A winner of the World Hunger Year Media Award.
