Nigeria: History, Identity, and Change invites students to explore Nigeria’s history—from the precolonial to the present—and think about what the country’s future might look like.
Strategies for Incorporating Choices Materials into AP Comparative Government
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:
- Nigeria: History, Identity, and Change
- China on the World Stage: Weighing the U.S. Response
- Between Two Worlds: Mexico at the Crossroads
- Iran Through the Looking Glass: History, Reform, and Revolution
- Russia’s Transformation: Challenges for U.S. Policy
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.
Workshop requirements: Participants will be asked to read Nigeria: History, Identity and Change before attending the program. The unit will be provided as a pdf once registration is received.
The unit Nigeria: History, Identity and Change and two additional units chosen from the list above (your choice), lunch each day, parking, and a certificate of attendance.
AP Comparative Government educators and others who teach government-related courses are the main audience.
