It's a Small World After All: Global Citizenship Education for the 21st Century

Implementation of a new library reading and discussion series for at-risk families in five states focusing on the theme of global citizenship.

"It's a Small World After All: Global Citizenship Education for the 21st Century" is a reading and discussion initiative developed by PRIME TIME, Inc. The project includes a new syllabus which focuses on themes of global citizenship. We live in a unique time in human history where the ideas, actions, and decisions of people on distant continents can quickly influence our daily lives. Developing knowledge and understanding of the concepts and forces that bind humanity is critical to our ability to fully participate in and positively contribute to our local and global communities. (Oxfam, 2006) The new syllabus is coupled with a new implementation format involving enhanced partnerships between three critical stakeholders-state humanities councils, public libraries, and public schools-to better serve and engage at-risk parents/guardians and their 6-10 year old children.
