Global Citizenship Education and Geography
This chapter explores the congruence of GCE and geography. We draw upon geography as a spatial understanding of people and discourse. The chapter describes how GCE is inherently spatial. The specific case is made and examined through the example of migration and movement. Three examples—coerced migration of women, the flows of power that produce refugees, and flow of texts—explore how GCE comes to fruition within geographic frames. The examples depicted here are all relevant to and might be taken up in K-12 classrooms. We propose that a Framework for Global Interpretation and supported spatial analysis programs can allow teachers to similarly take up a robust, multidimensional and interconnected examination of global issues.
