As a methods professor, your work in shaping future teachers is wildly critical to the future of our nation and planet. The Choices Program is here to help you provide your students with the materials and tools they will need to be successful in social studies and history classrooms.

Start here: Want to know exactly what is in our curriculum? Check out our Inside a Choices Curriculum Unit page!

Then select three units for free: We offer all methods professors three curriculum units in our Digital Editions format. These may be used in your classes to show exemplary curriculum and can also be used by your students when they are student teaching. See our complete collection in the curriculum catalog and then email Mimi_Stephens@brown.edu with your unit selections.

Explore our free resources: These Choices Program materials are free to all educators:

  • Our free online video collection includes more than 1,700 videos featuring leading scholars, journalists, practitioners, artists, activists, policy makers, and others addressing topics relevant to our curriculum units. Also check out our themed playlists on YouTube. Our videos are a great resource for new teachers!
  • Our free Teaching with the News lessons take one to three class periods to complete and are an excellent option for teaching about current events. Your soon-to-be teachers will appreciate having short, ready-to-use classroom materials at their fingertips.
  • Our Japanese American Incarceration in World War II unit is free in Digital Editions, thanks to National Park Service funding. Our Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies unit is also currently free as a 1-year license in Digital Editions.

Connect with Choices to set up a free webinar: If you are a methods professor or work with new teachers in some capacity, please contact Mimi_Stephens@brown.edu to arrange for a free half-hour introductory webinar for your students.

Join us on social media (and have your students do the same): Find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube!
