The U.S. Role in a Changing World helps students reflect on global changes, assess national priorities, and decide for themselves the role the United States should play in the world today. Readings include discussions of security, economy, environment, culture, and politics.
Engaging Students in International Issues: The Choices Approach
Our workshops are completely interactive, so be ready to be engaged and inspired!
Participants will be introduced to the Choices Program’s award-winning resources and approach to teaching about contested issues and exploring multiple perspectives.
Teachers will be immersed in Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate unit and will examine parts of The U.S. Role in a Changing World unit (provided). We will discuss ways to adapt these units to specific classroom goals.
Participants will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues in social studies education from across the state.Hosted by Oakland Schools
