Critical Global Competence and the C3 in Social Studies Education
Harshman, Jason
Social Studies, v107 n5 p160-164 2016
Research in global education has turned toward global citizenship education and the fostering of a more critical reading of the tenets of "soft" global education laid out over four decades ago in Hanvey's (1976) "An Attainable Global Perspective." Interested in skill building and informed application of concepts forwarded within critical approaches to global education, this article brings the NCSS C3 inquiry arc together with standards for Global Competence Education within social studies education. Using food insecurity as an example, the conceptualization provided demonstrates how coupling the C3 with the Global Competence standards creates a framework that social studies educators can use to prepare students to participate as informed, responsible, and critically minded change agents within complex and unequal global systems.
