Global Education Student Assessment Tools Inventory
Here I have posted three ways to assess our school for global learning. The first is a .pdf of the UNESCO Guidelines. The second .pdf helps teachers check for global competencies as they plan lessons. The final .pdf is also a checklist.
The UNESCO guidelines are quite comprehensive and include handy references as well. This is the tool Pin Oak should use in the beginning of our explorations with globalized learning. The information it contains will help keep us on track. Once we are all comfortable with globalizing our curriculum and our school, the checklist will help keep us there.
The Checklist for Teaching for Global Competence was created by the John Standford International School in Seattle, Washington. It is a great tool for the classroom teacher to perform self-assessment. One thing I would add would be a list of targeted global competences to help the teacher focus on the objectives at hand.
Another checklist, the Global Education Checklist for Teachers, Schools, School Systems and State Education Agencies, is much more comprehensive. It was created by Fred Czarra and published by the American Forum for Global Education. This checklist would be a great tool for Pin Oak Middle School, but I feel training in global competencies would need to occur first.
