Colonization and Independence in Africa helps students explore Africa in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and consider the changes colonialism imposed on African governments, economies, and societies. Students then consider African resistance to colonialism and examine the experiences of Africans in four case studies.
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;
- A complete immersion in two Choices units: Colonization and Independence in Africa and Russia’s Transformation: Challenges for U.S. Policy (provided); and
- An exploration of ways to use Choices materials to meet local standards or classroom goals.
Workshop includes two units ($80 value), lunch, and a certificate of completion. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for pre-service teachers. Districts wishing to register 5 or more educators will receive 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. We welcome teamed ELA and social studies teachers to attend together.
