The Choices Program’s Current Issues Series: Focus on the Syrian Civil War Unit

NOTE: This event has been cancelled.

This is an interactive, online workshop which will be conducted through Zoom. We will examine the readings, lessons, and videos included in the The Syrian Civil War unit that are appropriate for the geography, current issues, and world history classroom.

Participants will be expected to read the unit ahead of time, and come prepared to engage with their colleagues during the online program.

Collage of Aleppo, Syria, people standing in front of a mosque in Damascus, and refugees on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea.

Cost: $75 per person.

Registration fee includes an individual two-year Digital Editions license for The Syrian Civil War unit.

A certificate of attendance for 4 hours, which reflects one hour of preparation for the online workshop, will be provided.

Pre-registration is required. Early registration is recommended as enrollment is limited to 25 participants.

There are no refunds for no shows or last minute cancellations.


This online interactive workshop is appropriate for middle and high school world history, geography, social studies, and humanities teachers, including AP and IB educators.

Your program was informative, interesting, and helpful. As a speaker and presenter, your style is most effective. No nonsense, fun, and engaging.
