Diversity, Global Citizenship and the Culturally Responsive School
In this chapter, Robert Hattam explores notions of citizenship and global citizenship through the prism of the culturally responsive school. Following a contextual and theoretical introduction, the chapter reports on research which adopted a case study approach informed by ethnographic methods and that brings into one study an examination of school structures, cultures and pedagogy. The analysis provided examines how the school responds to the challenges of teaching future Australian global citizens how to live together in communities of increasing cultural diversity, before identifying six characteristics for a culturally responsive school—characteristics which provide an important frame for educating for global citizenship.
