Students examine the causes and effects of global warming and delve into questions of who is most responsible for and vulnerable to the changing climate. Students also grapple with how to respond to climate change in ways that are both effective and fair.
Teaching About Contested International Issues: An Introduction to Brown University’s Choices Program
Seoul, South Korea
Brown University’s Choices Program invites educators to join us for a two-day, introductory immersion workshop on our curriculum and approach for teaching about contested international issues.
Our inquiry approach to controversial issues—both current and historical—will support your students to:
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.Co-sponsored and hosted by Seoul International School, Seoul, South Korea
All participants receive a one-year, school-wide Digital Editions license to the following curriculum units:
- Climate Change and Questions of Justice
- Colonization and Independence in Africa

Lunches and a certificate of completion are also included.
Pre-registration is required.
Early registration is advised.
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
