Is building students' global competence a priority at your school sites? EL students are already building the skills necessary to navigate diverse linguistic and cultural landscapes, but there are many more ways they can utilize these skills to expand their global lens. Learn about the Four Domains of Global Competency and how to capitalize on the unique vantage point of ELs as a port of entry into global awareness. Review the indicators and benchmarks of global competence for K-12 students that were recently developed based on the recommendations from the 2016 California Global Education Summit and relate them to the ELD Standards through engaging activities and strategies used to build proficiency.
