Teaching an International Bestseller: Reflections on Encouraging Caring Global Citizenship
The Journal of General Education
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.
