Students explore the transformation of North America in the nineteenth century and probe this complicated and violent history, considering the major events and policies that accompanied U.S. territorial growth and the effects at a local level.
The Choices Approach: Engaging Students in Inquiry and Discussion About International Issues
Our workshops are participatory, so come ready to be engaged and inspired!
This workshop includes:
- An introduction to the Choices Program’s award-winning resources and approach to teaching about contested international issues;
- A complete immersion in two Choices units (provided); and
- An exploration of ways to use Choices materials to meet local standards or classroom goals.
U.S. History, geography, government, current issues, AP, IB, civics and other social studies educators are the main audience for these workshops. Materials are appropriate for grades 7-12. Humanities teachers often use our materials and are encouraged to attend. We welcome teamed ELA and social studies teachers to attend together.
