Global competence is at the forefront of success in a multicultural environment. Whether at home or beyond, the world of the 21st century demands that we understand and act appropriately on issues of global importance. The “Global Competence Matrices,” * developed by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), support the P21 Partnership for 21st Century Learning. The matrices encourage all teachers to help students build the capacity for understanding the issues of global significance by investigating the world, recognizing perspectives, communicating ideas and taking action. The matrices educate us on how to successfully coexist and thrive with other cultures.
A valuable resource for resolving challenging issues and addressing cultural questions to help you do your job with renewed confidence.
