The Council of Chief State School Officers' (CCSSO) Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) Model Core Teaching Standards provide a cohesive, well-established set of standards that outline what teachers should know and be able to do to prepare PK-12 students for the challenges of college or the workforce in many aspects of teaching.
NAFSA's Global Preparation Lens for the InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards is intended to facilitate opportunities for teacher educators and teachers to recognize and develop globally competent teaching within the InTASC framework. NAFSA's Lens integrates statements of knowledge, skills, and dispositions that focus on the development of global competence within the InTASC standards.
ABOUT THE GLOBAL PREPARATION LENS
NAFSA's Global Preparation Lens highlights elements in the InTASC standards under the headings Performances, Essential Knowledge, and Critical Dispositions that speak directly to a global focus for teachers and learners, marking them with a Global Preparation Lens icon. In addition, NAFSA has inserted additional phrases and concepts to articulate further elements of performances, knowledge, and dispositions that contribute to global competence. Finally, the Global Preparation Lens offers a new definition of global competence as a theme for the Glossary of Terms and provides a listing of the numbers of items in the document that refer to global competence.
