A groundbreaking roadmap for improving global literacy and conflict-resolution skills in middle and high schools across the United States
In"e;Raising Global IQ,"e; Carl Hobert calls on K 12 teachers, administrators, parents, and students alike to transform the educational system by giving students the tools they need to become responsible citizens in a shrinking, increasingly interdependent world. Drawing on his nearly thirty years teaching, developingcurricula, and leading conflict-resolution workshops here and around the world, he offers creative, well-tested, and understandable pedagogical ideas to help improve our children s GIQ Global Intelligence Quotient. Cognizant of many U.S. schools limited budgets and time, Hobert advocates teaching foreign languages early in life, honing students conflict-resolution skills, providing creative-service learning opportunities, and offering cultural-exchange possibilities in students own communities, as well as nationally and abroad all before they graduate from high school.
