You will also be introduced to the Choices Program’s award-winning resources and approach for teaching about contested topics in U.S. History, network with exemplary colleagues in social studies education from across the area, and learn about additional opportunities at Brown University for you and your students to engage in innovate content on this time period in U.S. history.
