Institutes

Our institutes join content and methodology for a rich and rewarding learning experience. Whether it is a one-day seminar or an one-week summer institute, these programs bring content specialists together with classroom teachers at the secondary level. They engage the participants in scholarship on the topic and provide opportunities for teachers to explore ways to incorporate the Choices Program’s resources and approach to make international issues come alive for students.

For our annual leadership summer institute, Choices collaborates with multiple scholars who provide content sessions and one or more “lead teachers” who provide peer leadership to help teachers incorporate Choices into their classroom teaching.
