Digital and Print Curriculum: Unique units bridge history and current issues.
The Choices Program draws on scholarship conducted at Brown University and beyond to produce innovative curriculum and videos that make contested international current and historical events accessible, engaging, and relevant to secondary school audiences.
Black Lives Matter, the Killing of George Floyd, and the Long Fight for Racial Justice
In this free lesson, students review a timeline of black activism, identify patterns and themes, consider accomplishments of civil rights activists and the enduring obstacles to racial equality, and evaluate platforms for activism and the role of social media in protests.
The Russian Revolution
This is a major, must-have overhaul and replacement for this popular unit. Students explore the events leading up to Lenin and the Bolsheviks' assumption of power; the political and economic conditions that led to the fall of the Tsar; and the competing political ideologies in revolutionary-era Russia.
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
