Raising Global IQ is available now!

A groundbreaking roadmap for improving global literacy and conflict-resolution skills in middle and high schools across the United States
 
In Raising Global IQ: Preparing our Students for a Shrinking Planet, 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, developing curricula, 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.

 

Raising Global IQ has been selected as top five U.S. business books by Shanghai Daily!

 

 A Must Read for All Educators!

“In our rapidly globalizing world, it is crucial that we prepare our students to be globally-minded, whether by expanding access to world languages, integrating 21st century technology into the curriculum, or promoting the importance of serving others in the community and around the world.  Developing students’ global IQ is more than an aspiration – it is a necessity.”

~Dr. Carol Johnson, Superintendent, Boston Public Schools

"Raising Global IQ is a powerful statement of not merely the conditions of contemporary American education, but an insightful and thoughtful proposal for educational transformation. At the same time personal and theoretical, reflective and analytical, this volume places Carl Hobert in the forefront of American educators, and quite possibly the person to draw up a genuinely inspiring blueprint for schooling in the 21st century."

~Tom Cottle, Boston University Professor and Author.

"Carl Hobert offers reasoned and informed proposals to address one of the most vexing and important problems of our time. Why do Americans in general know so little about other countries and other cultures? How can we design our teaching and learning environment to better prepare students to live in an increasingly inter-connected and competitive world?  This is an important book for anyone who cares about – and fears for – our future."

~Steve Bosworth, Dean of the Tufts Fletcher School, Former Ambassador to South Korea, the Philippines and Tunisia, Special Envoy to North Korea.

"Across the political spectrum and around the world, people are touting the importance of Global Education. In this book, experienced educator Carl Hobert puts forth a thoughtful description of an education that is suited for our times."

~Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education. Author of Multiple Intelligences and Five Minds for the Future.
