Students explore the history of immigration to the United States and recent U.S. policy as they consider the complexities of the U.S. immigration debate and prepare to articulate their own views about this issue.
Engaging Students in International Issues: The Choices Approach
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;
- An immersion in two Choices units: Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate, and Colonization and Independence in Africa (provided); and
- Strategies for using Choices materials to meet classroom goals.
Workshop includes the two curriculum units, lunch, and a certificate of completion. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for pre-service teachers. Districts may register 5 or more participants at 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.
