CTE and Global Competency

(View Complete Item Description)

It’s no secret that we are living in a time of rapid economic, technological, and social changes, which are creating a world that is ever more interconnected. One in ten Americans is foreign born, and all of our local communities – urban, suburban, and rural – are growing more diverse. To take advantage of global and local market opportunities, companies want to hire workers with global competence—that is, the capacity and disposition to understand act on issues of global significance. In these lessons, we discuss ways to prepare all students for work and civic roles in an environment where success increasingly requires the ability to compete, connect, and cooperate on an international scale.
