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.
Materials and Approach for Teaching About Contested International Issues
Our workshops are participatory, so come ready to be engaged and inspired!
Join us for an interactive immersion into the Choices approach for teaching about contested international and public policy issues. Participants will consider the Choices Program’s model for developing curriculum and work with two Choices curriculum units, Immigration and the U.S. Policy Debate and Brazil: A History of Change (provided) to explore ways to build students’ global competency and civic engagement. The goal of the program is for participants to experience the power of the Choices Program’s award-winning curriculum and consider ways to bring the Choices approach and materials into their own classrooms.
Workshop includes the two curriculum units, breakfast and snacks each day, and a certificate of completion.
History, geography, current issues, IB and other educators who incorporate international content in the classroom are the main audience for this workshop. Materials are appropriate for grades 7-12. Humanities teachers often use our materials and are encouraged to attend.
