Two-day Introductory Workshop

Materials and Approach for Teaching About Contested International Issues

8:00 am — 4:00 pm
GEBG’s Global Educators Conference
Cleveland, OH

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.
