Students explore Africa in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and consider the changes colonialism imposed on African governments, economies, and societies. Students consider some of the ways Africans responded to European colonialism.
Teaching about Contested International Issues: An Introduction to Brown University’s Choices Program
Please join us for a two-day introductory workshop to learn how our inquiry approach to controversial issues—both current and historical—can help your students:
build historical thinking skills such as sourcing, contextualization and chronological reasoning;
create persuasive arguments;
analyze evidence to determine fact from opinion; and
build consensus across differences to sharpen civic literacy skills.
Information about other leading History and Social Studies providers, such as SHEG, the DBQ Project, and SPICE, will also be distributed.
