Engaging Students in Contested Issues: The Choices Approach
Our workshops are interactive, so be ready to be engaged and inspired!
Participants will be completely immersed in Freedom Now: the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi and examine parts of the Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate. Both units are provided. Participants will discuss ways to adapt these units to specific classroom goals. The workshop will also highlight free resources on the Choices website.Hosted by Tougaloo College.
Workshop includes the two curriculum units, lunch, and a certificate of completion. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for pre-service teachers. Contact Mimi Stephens for details.
History, geography, African-American Studies, Mississippi Studies, current issues, and other social studies educators are the main audience. Materials are appropriate for grades 7-12. Humanities teachers often use our materials and are encouraged to attend.
