 Endorsements for The Global Education Guidebook

“It’s hard to imagine a more important goal than preparing students to create a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world. Yet educators often struggle when it comes to moving ideas from the mission statement into the classroom. Making global education a priority demands that teachers develop new understandings, connections, and courage to engage their students with the wider world. With The Global Education Guidebook, Jennifer Klein provides useful tools, practical strategies, and plentiful examples to make global education more accessible for all. Having walked this path herself as learner, teacher, and coach, she knows the terrain, including which pitfalls to avoid. Her powerful stories remind us why the journey is not only worthwhile but urgent for today’s students and teachers to embark on together.”

Suzie Boss, author of Bringing Innovation to School and co-author of Reinventing Project-Based


The Global Education Guidebook by Jennifer Klein is the resource educators of all levels, including administrators, have been waiting for. The book’s balanced approach between the theory behind global education and practical applications make it an excellent guide for the teacher who is just starting to upgrade and amplify curriculum; it also works for the more experienced educator who will receive powerful, yet practical, recommendations and perspectives to teach, foster, and assess global competencies.”

“Over the last 15 years I’ve known Jennifer D. Klein she’s been a go-to resource regarding global education. Whether it’s a new communications platform, a new strategy, or a new connection, Jennifer has been able to suggest just the thing I needed to help teachers take their own global learning a step further. With the Global Education Guidebook, Jennifer shares those suggestions and more with a world-wide audience in a way that invites everyone to join this important conversation about the future of learning. Her voice as an author is the same caring, supportive voice I know from our long thought-partnership, and it’s one both young and adult learners are sure to find welcoming. I encourage you to join the conversation Jennifer has started!”
