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.
Engaging Students in International Issues: The Choices Approach
Led by a local Teaching Fellow or a Choices staff member, introductory workshops are designed to introduce teachers to Choices curriculum units and approach. The program fee generally includes lunch and two Choices units explored during the day.
Our workshops are participatory, so come ready to be engaged and inspired!
Each Choices Introductory 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.
Workshop includes two units ($80 value), lunch, and a certificate of completion. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for pre-service teachers. Districts wishing to register 5 or more educators will receive a discount. Contact Mimi Stephens for details.
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.
