Summer Two-day Workshop

Strategies for Incorporating Choices Materials into AP Comparative Government

8:30 am — 4:00 pm
Brown University
Providence, RI

The goals of the program are to provide AP Comparative Government educators with an inquiry-based approach to examining comparative governments that provides both course-appropriate content and builds students’ critical analysis skills and an introduction to five Choices Program’s curriculum units:

We will also provide practical ways to implement this approach and these units, in part or whole, into the course.

This is a hands-on, interactive program.  Participants will engage in activities, contribute to discussions, and lead small group presentations.

Draft Agenda

AP Comparative Government educators and others who teach government-related courses are the main audience.
