Teaching About Current Issues: Genocide, U.S.-Russia Relations, and More with the Choices Program’s Award-winning Curriculum

Join the Choices Program in New Jersey as we explore two timely and recently updated curriculum units from our Current Issues Series: Russia and the United States: Perspectives From HistoryChoices for Today (replacing Russia’s Transformation; update forthcoming) and Confronting Genocide: Never Again? (October 2022). We’ll explore new lessons, new videos, and new content in each curriculum unit, with an eye towards how to implement these materials in diverse classroom settings. We’ll also try out a few inquiry lessons from each unit to see how they build essential skills.
