40First you help them deﬁne the term “citizen of the world”. Thenyou help them learn what being a good citizen means -- tothemselves, to loved ones and family, to the school community,to the surrounding community. One’s actions can be directlylinked to one’s values (beliefs, feelings, and actions that areimportant to us), so starting with a basic understanding ofone’s values is essential to any meaningful discussions oncitizenship. The global context is meaningless unless studentsare good citizens of their own nation.
41Right before our eyes, all that the education sector hascontrolled, dismissed, manipulated, validated, embellished,ﬁctionalized, and ranked within an aura of tradition and ritualmay be accessed by point-and-click. We need to stop chasingexponentially expanding content. Inquiry, problem recognitionand solution, creativity, knowing one’s strengths andweaknesses, communication, and relationships are whatstudents must be prepared for.
42Becoming a world citizen requires knowledge andexperience of other cultures; U.S. schools do not provideknowledge or experience. Rather, they provide a cursoryglimpse of others in order to exemplify how not to be American.“Diversity Day” does not create world citizens, it patronizescultural difference and touts xenophobia, and always winds uppandering American culture as Eurocentrically deﬁned. Onlytravel and immersion in other cultures creates world citizens.
43Prepare students to be citizens of the world by being oneyourself. Teach from a global perspective.
