Choices offers a range of professional development opportunities designed to support teachers as they implement our resources in their classrooms. Our professional development is teacher-centered and brings together the best scholarship and pedagogy available.
The Choices Program is excited to offer this unique professional development opportunity for social studies district leaders. Social Studies and the Common Core will explore methods for implementing the Choices Program’s materials and approach to meet Common Core standards in the Social Studies.
One-day introductory workshops are offered nationwide. Led by local Teaching Fellows, these sessions are designed to introduce teachers to Choices curriculum units and approach.
Institutes engage participants in scholarship on a specific topic while also providing an opportunity to explore ways to incorporate the Choices Program’s resources and approach to international issues.
The Summer Leadership Institute is the cornerstone of the Choices Teaching Fellows Program. Hear what some of the Teaching Fellows are saying about the Choices Program by visiting Teacher Conversations.
Social Studies Excellence: The Choices Approach introduces educators to the Choices approach and resources for teaching contested international issues. This free, self-paced learning module can be used by social studies supervisors, Methods professors, and individual teachers.
Choices staff or a local Choices Teaching Fellow look forward to conducting a program in your district to meet your professional development goals. Programs introduce teachers to Choices resources and approach to addressing contested current and historical international issues. There is a fee for our services. We are happy to tailor a program to your specific needs.
The Choices Program offers introductory workshops at professional conferences. Educators can also find us in the exhibit hall at national and regional conferences.
