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: Russia’s Transformation: Challenges for U.S. Policy and Iran Through the Looking Glass: History, Revolution and Reform (provided); and
- Strategies for using Choices materials to meet classroom goals.
Workshop includes the two curriculum units, 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. Materials are appropriate for grades 7-12. Humanities teachers often use our materials and are encouraged to attend.
