18 Investigate the World Globally competent students are able to investigate the world in the following ways: Identify an issue, generatea question, and explain the significance of locally, regionally, and globally focused researchable questions. Use a variety of languages and domestic and international sources to identify and weigh relevant evidence in addressing a globally significant researchable question. Analyze, integrate, and synthesize evidence to construct coherent responses to globally significant, researchable questions. Develop an argument based on compelling evidence that considers multiple perspectives and draws defensible conclusions. 18

19 Recognize Perspectives Globally competent students are able to recognize perspectives in the following ways: Recognize and express their own perspective on situations, events, issues, or phenomena and identify the influences on that perspective. Examine perspectives of other people, groups, or schools of thought and identify the influences on those perspectives. Explain how cultural interactions influence situations, events, issues, or phenomena, including the development of knowledge. Articulate how differential access to knowledge, technology, and resources affects quality of life and perspectives. 19

20 Communicate Ideas Globally competent students are able to communicate ideas in the following ways: Recognize and express how diverse audiences may perceive different meanings from the same information and how that impacts communication. Listen to and communicate effectively with diverse people, using appropriate verbal and nonverbal behavior, languages, and strategies.

23 International Studies Schools Network Since 2003, the ISSN has expanded significantly and demonstrated the success of its model: A network of 35 urban, suburban, and rural schools in eight states across the US that serve over 16,000 students. 78% of ISSN students served are minority students. 65% are students from low-income families. The average graduation rate is 88%. ISSN schools outperform demographically similar schools on state assessments in about 61% of comparisons across tested grade levels and subject areas. 1 1 Source: Blazevski, Juliane. “Student Achievement in the International Studies Schools Network: 2011-12 Academic Year Update,” Hypothesi Educational Research, Evaluation and Consulting, LLC, June 14, 2013 23

24 Vision, Mission, and School Culture Curriculum, Assessment, & Instruction Professional Learning Communities School Organization and Governance Partnerships Successful ISSN School International Studies Schools Network Design Model

26 Vision, Mission, Culture Shared definition of success: globally competent, college ready graduates High expectations for all students to gain the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of a college ready, globally competent citizen

27 Curriculum, Assessment & Instruction What would globally focused curriculum and instruction “look like” in …. Science? English Language Arts? Social Studies? World Language? Interdisciplinary Coursework?

28 Only half of all U.S. high school students take even one year of a world language and those enrollments are almost entirely in Spanish. Spanish Only 25% of elementary schools in the United States offered any world languages. MOE requires to start from G3 Top-down policy: compulsory from G5/6 Encourage to start at 8-year-old, mandate from 10- year-old From 6- year-old From 3- year-old No requirement. Only several states out of 50 (LA, ME, NC, NJ, OK, TN, TX) have suggestions / Encouragements.
