As you begin your journey to incorporate more global competencies in your classroom, preparing your students to be global citizens, and not just master your local standards, the following tools to assess global competencies may come in handy.
- The Global Competence Matrix was created as part of the Council of Chief State School Officers’ EdSteps Project, in partnership with the Asia Society Partnership for Global Learning.
- Checklist for Teaching for Global Competence: Educators from John Standford International School in Seattle, Washington, have provided this resource and tool for teaching global competence.
