Introductory Workshop

What’s New in the Choices Current Issues Series?

8:30 am — 3:30 pm
Brown University
Providence, RI

Join us as we explore the new content and lessons in three recently updated Current Issues units: Responding to Terrorism: Challenges for Democracy; The U.S. Role in a Changing World; and The Middle East: Questions for U.S. Policy (update forthcoming).

This is a hands-on session. We’ll try out a lesson or two from each unit, highlight content that was updated in the student readings, and discuss ways to implement these units in diverse classroom settings.

“I think your program was informative, interesting, and helpful. As a speaker and presenter, your style is most effective. No nonsense, fun, and engaging. These are rare qualifications and qualities. Thank you very much.”  – Fred, Workshop Participant
