The United Nations: Challenges and Change helps students consider the record of the United Nations since its founding. Students examine the UN’s role in the world through an evaluation of three areas of UN work: the Security Council, peacekeeping, and human rights.
Engaging Students in International Issues: The Choices Approach
Our workshops are interactive, so be ready to be engaged and inspired!
Participants will be completely immersed in United Nations: Challenges and Change, and will examine parts of A New Nation. Both units are provided. Participants will discuss ways to adapt these units to specific classroom goals. The workshop will also highlight free resources on the Choices website.Co-Sponsored by DACOR, An Organization of Foreign Affairs Professionals
