Standing Committee on Global Citizenship


In order to identify and address issues of broad concern to NCTE members interested in promoting global citizenship and connections across global contexts within the Council and within members’ teaching contexts, the Standing Committee on Global Citizenship is charged:

  •  To promote interest and knowledge of global connections and issues across the Council, including convention sessions, publications, social media, and Council projects;
  • To promote discussions of the learning needs of students in schools and colleges who come from global contexts and of instructional strategies for teachers of these students; 
  • To encourage discussions of the teaching of English and world Englishes in global contexts as well as in North American schools and colleges with increasingly globally diverse students;
  • To provide awareness of literacy education in global contexts in order to provide a mutual exchange of pedagogical ideas and issues;
  • To encourage the integration of global and international literature and of strategies for intercultural understanding within schools and colleges; and
  • To engage the Council in an exploration of the changing needs of literacy teaching and learning in an increasingly global society and as members of a broader global community.
