“Rationale for Global Competence”
• “Globalization, the digital revolution, mass migration, and the
prospect of climate instability are triggering new concerns and
demanding a new kind of graduate.”
• An increasing number of education related reports, “call for
more powerful, relevant, and self-directed learning that will
prepare the young to live, compete, and collaborate in a new
global scenario.”

International Engagement
Charles E.M. Kolb, President of the Committee for
Economic Development
Our nations schools are locked in a time warp. By ignoring
critical languages … and the essential cultural knowledge
needed to succeed, our school systems are out of step with
new global realities.
GASTON CAPERTON President, College Board
Americans have been the world’s most successful students
and entrepreneurs for the past century. We have to
envision a new set of global skills that include
understanding world languages and cultures to retain our
edge in an increasingly interconnected economy.
CCSSO Draft Model Core Teaching Standards

Student Teaching Abroad
Andrea Racine, Germany, 2010: “I
have learned that as a
teacher/educator I have the ability to
be the fun and well-loved teacher I
strive to be every day while
maintaining a well structured and
managed classroom.”
Cassandra Criscillis, New
Zealand, 2011: “I love hearing
other people’s stories, ideas,
and opinions on life. I can tell
you that I have truly learned a
lot through this experience,
and it has only been a few
weeks!”
Katie Mara, Ireland, 2010: “I
thoroughly enjoyed my time in the
classroom and cannot wait until I
have a classroom of my own. I am
going to miss my Irish students who
helped me become the teacher I am
today.”
