Global Issue Overviews
Aligned to the UN Sustainable Goals, our Global Issue Overviews span a broad range of globally significant issues and frame essential questions and enduring understandings for teachers and students alike. Overviews connect to our Performance Outcomes to demonstrate how competence can be achieved.
A Global Issue Overview is a tool that frames a globally significant issue in an easily digestible way. You don't need to be an expert in a global issue in order to teach it, because in performance assessment your students develop the expertise. A Global Issue Overview gives you enough knowledge to establish the connections to your academic goals, the four domains of global competence, and the performance assessment you are designing.
The Center for Global Education's full collection of Global Issue Overviews are currently available to members of the International Studies Schools Network. Please contact Kate Farmer to learn more about the Network and how you can get involved.
