One of our mandates as teachers is to help students become active citizens by entering into the national dialogue on public policy issues. Consideration of values is central to these discussions. However, some students enter the discussion unsure of what is meant by values. This simple values exercise can clarify the concept and allow the student to move forward.
Social Studies Excellence: The Choices Approach is a self-paced, noncredit learning module designed to introduce educators to the Choices approach and resources for teaching about contested international issues.
