In a world that is increasingly interconnected, it is important for students in the United States to develop an understanding and appreciation for the history, culture, and traditions of their peers in other nations. Connecting Across Cultures: Grades K-8 offers educators a roadmap to global education with proven, practical ways to modify the curriculum to prepare students to be contributing members of the global village. There are practical suggestions for all curriculum areas that will provide teachers with examples of how their subject area can move toward a more global approach. It's not adding more to an already full schedule; it's changing what happens in the classroom to increase student understanding and challenge attitudes and assumptions they have about other nations, cultures, and traditions. It points the way to forming friendships with students around the world.

Mary Ann Buchino has worked at Nativity School for the past 23 years and has been intimately involved with the development of the global education program. Bob Herring has been principal of Nativity School since 1984, where he developed and refined the global education program. He was awarded the National Distinguished Principal Award (2006) from the National Association of Elementary School Principals and the United States Department of Education.Review:
I strongly recommend this book. As we learn more about effective global education, there is every indication that 'the sooner the better' is the operative phrase. This book is a wonderful how-to guide. (Paul Miller, Direction of Global Initiatives, NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools))
Rarely do schools with innovative international ed programs take the time to share their ideas and practical advice with their peers. Buchino and Herring have provided such a book, which will inspire many other schools to make global connections and foster worldmindedness. (Merry Merryfield, professor of social studies and global education, The Ohio State University)
Schools must increase the global awareness and international exchanges for students. This book provides a useful roadmap to parents, teachers, and administrators alike. Well-written and engaging, any educator concerned about globalization can gain useful ideas on programs and global exchange processes. (Kent Peterson, professor, Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Buchino and Herring's book offers a practical, hand-on guide to implementing global education in the classroom. It is packed with good ideas and valuable resources for teachers and administrators considering enhancing global education in their school. In an ever-changing and increasingly complex world, the need for better global education cannot be understated; through broadening the minds of our students to accept other cultures, we have the potential to spread peace and understanding within the next generation. (Jim Rigg, superintendent of Catholic schools, Archdiocese of Cincinnati)
Being a prolific, eclectic reader, I am usually on the alert for a good book to read specifically now that I am semi retired. When asked to review Connecting Across Cultures: Global Education in Grades K-8, I jumped at the chance since I am currently training K-6 teachers with Cal State Teach. I found the book quite informative and innovative in such a way that it excited my appetite to read more literature in the same area of study. I can readily recommend Buchino and Herring's book as a good, exciting, intellectual read. (Joseph R. Maruca, Ed.D., retired superintendent, Central Union High School District, El Centro, CA; adjunct professor, Imperial Valley College, San Diego)
Teaching and practicing social justice is an essential part of today's Catholic school curriculum. It requires expanding students' awareness and respect for diverse people and cultures. Based on the experience of teachers and students at Nativity School, this book offers practical examples for beginning or enhancing global education programs for K-8 students. (Robert R. Bimonte, FSC, executive director, NCEA Elementary Department (National Catholic Educators Association))
