The following units are currently in the research and development stage at the Choices Program. Look for announcements on our website, newsletter, and social media regarding availability!
The Vietnam War (title to be determined)
This curriculum unit will examine the history of the Vietnam War, introducing students to the war’s origins, its effects on Vietnam and the United States, and its long-term legacies. Students will explore a wide range of Vietnamese and American primary sources, learn about the war’s global context in the era of decolonization and Cold War power struggles, and reflect on the historical memory of the war within Vietnam and the United States.
Lessons for Ethnic Studies (title to be determined)
This collection of lessons selected from the Choices Program’s curriculum series provides teachers with stand-alone activities that have a special focus on ethnic studies for U.S. history courses. The lessons help students explore the experiences of various groups and their contributions to the development of the United States. These lessons do not have the accompanying readings contained in standard Choices curriculum units. Teachers may need to provide some basic context to students before beginning the lessons. Each lesson plan includes some suggestions about context.
