Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate helps students examine the historical and current dimensions of immigration, a topic that has become a key focus of U.S. policy. Through readings and activities, students explore past immigration laws and consider different policy options for the future.
Engaging Students in International Issues: The Choices Approach
Our workshops are participatory, so come ready to be engaged and inspired!
Each Choices Introductory Workshop Includes:
- An introduction to the Choices Program’s award-winning resources and approach to teaching about contested international issues;
- An immersion in two Choices units: Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate, and Colonization and Independence in Africa, (provided); and
- Strategies for using Choices materials to meet classroom goals.
Workshop includes the two curriculum units, Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate, and Colonization and Independence in Africa, lunch, and a certificate of completion. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for pre-service teachers. Districts may register 5 or more participants at a discount. Contact Mimi Stephens for details.
History, geography, government, current issues, AP, IB, civics and other social studies educators are the main audience for these workshops. Materials are appropriate for grades 7-12. Humanities teachers often use our materials and are encouraged to attend.
