Abstract

This article discusses an integrative model of gradual scaffolding of curricular and pedagogical strategies, based on the theoretical framework of a “caring global citizenship.” It provides concrete practices for internationalization of general education that could be implemented in a wide variety of institutional settings. Such a model addresses ethnocentrism by expanding students' knowledge and perspectives on societies influenced by American politics, and fosters empathy as both value and skill.
