The diverse interpretations teachers of English around the world have been giving to the task of promoting global citizenship in their classrooms are reflected in this collection with understandings that range from a more prescriptive approach to a transformational one. As such they bring the potential for new approaches to be tried out in different contexts. We hope the initiative of making these views and ideas more publicly available will inspire teachers to experiment and evaluate the results. The world is changing rapidly and as educators teachers of English are being required to take a stand on political and ethical grounds, making informed decisions about why and what to teach. It is our hope that this book will succeed in helping teachers to move in that direction.
