"Never Again is Now": Incarceration Histories and Solidarity
In this free online lesson, students use primary sources to compare and contrast Japanese American incarceration in WWII and contemporary migrant detention, and explore how knowledge of history can inspire activism and build solidarity.
Climate Change and Questions of Justice
This unit examines the causes and effects of global warming and delves into questions of who is most responsible for and vulnerable to the changing climate. Students also grapple with how to respond to climate change in ways that are both effective and fair. The updated edition includes a new focus on youth climate activism, updated content on global climate negotiations and agreements, and more.
History, Revolution, and Reform: New Directions for Cuba
Cubans have very different opinions about their country and its history, particularly about the Cuban Revolution that began in 1959. In the second edition of this unit, students explore Cuba’s history and the Cuban Revolution, and consider the country’s future.

What Teachers Are Saying
Your curricula changed the way my students think about the world. They can see their country in France's peasants and the enslaved people of Saint Domingue. They can understand Black people's plights in the language of Emilioano Zapata. They have the tools to navigate the complexities of this moment.— Savannah, Connecticut
This is an amazing [digital] platform you have. I can't believe how intuitive and user friendly it is. The fact that you have a "student view" is priceless... My students always comment at the end of the year how the Choices units we have done are their favorite.— Charlie, Washington
The digital format works well. I am able to have my students read informative material without having to copy readings that could be lost, but I have the option to print if students prefer paper. I am able to control what students see. The option to unselect material is great if I am only using parts of a unit.— Betsy, Rhode Island
I have been able to easily assign Choices readings, and since the study guides open in Google Docs, it has been a seamless transition to use the online Choices resources. Many, many thanks for providing the e-access for us!— Pam, New Hampshire
