Leadership Institutes

The Choices Program’s annual leadership institute engages participants in scholarship on a critical international issue and provides an opportunity for teachers to expand their repertoire of techniques for incorporating Choices curricula into various secondary courses. Graduates of an Institute are called Choices Teaching Fellows, and are expected to conduct outreach activities in their districts and beyond. For the annual Summer Leadership 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.
