Students explore the evolution of the international community’s response to genocide and examine how the U.S. has responded to multiple cases of genocide.
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.
