Across a diversity of contexts and disciplines one thing is a constant: globally competent students are mentored by teachers skilled at preparing young minds to understand and act on matters of global significance. So just what does high-quality teaching for global competence look like? How can teachers design instruction to foster global competence among their students?

While designing instruction for global competence, think about:

  1. What topics matter most to teach?
  2. What exactly will students take away from a unit, project, visit, or course?
  3. What will students do to learn?
  4. How will we know they are making progress?

Asia Society has developed a number of tools that help teachers find answers to these and other critical questions.
