: Call for Proposal- Special Issue: Global Citizenship Education in Social Studies

Students across the globe interact with a diversity of cultures and perspectives in and out of the classroom at a much higher rate than any generation before them. The demands and outcomes of global interconnectedness have led classroom educators, school leadership, teacher educators, and researchers to rethink what students need to learn and be able to do as members of a globally interdependent world. As a result, preparing students to participate as informed and responsible players within complex and unequal global systems must be an integral component of K-16 global education.
The Journal of Social Studies Education Research issues a call for a special issue dedicated to theoretical, researchbased, and practitioner oriented work on teaching and learning that bring social studies and global citizenship education together. If you are interested in contributing to this issue, please send Dr. Jason Harshman (jasonharshman@uiowa.edu) and Dr. Emin Kilinç (emin.kilinc@dpu.edu.tr) an abstract of your proposed article. The Guest Editors welcome inquiries regarding article ideas and manuscripts that explore an array of topics related to teaching, learning, and research in global education that include, but are not limited to:
Global citizenship and the place of global education in social studies curriculum and related subject matters;
Teaching and learning of human rights education, sustainability education, peace education, social justice education, or service learning within social studies and global education;
Case studies or examinations of classroom practices that include the integration of technology, project-based learning, literacy, and more within global citizenship education;
Multi-disciplinary approaches to teaching and learning in global education;
Global citizenship education through transcultural communications and experiential learning;
Global education in social studies teacher education and professional development.
Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be expected to submit a final manuscript by June 1, 2016 that is formatted in accordance with the Author Guidelines provided by JSSER (http://jsser.org/about/submissions#authorGuidelines).
