WHO SHOULD ATTEND

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

“I really appreciate it when you leave professional development and can immediately put the training to practical use. We did a Middle East role play, and it was one of the most engaging activities I have done at a training. I cannot imagine a teacher not being sold on Choices.”
– Erin, U.S. History and Global Issues Teacher
