The Choices Program is non-profit organization based at Brown University. We develop curricula on current and historical international issues and offer professional development for educators.
Choices materials incorporate the latest scholarship from Brown University and beyond to draw connections between historical events and contemporary international issues.
In each unit, a central activity challenges students to consider multiple viewpoints on a contested issue. Students examine the historical, cultural, and political background of the issue to prepare a coherent presentation.
Follow-up discussion demands analysis, and evaluation of conflicting values, interests, and priorities. Ultimately, students are expected to formulate persuasive arguments and express their own views.

Welcome to Inquiry Schools! We are excited to launch our non-profit venture of creating and supporting inquiry-driven, project-based modern schools. We work with Science Leadership Academy and Science Leadership Academy @ Beeber and the proposed Science Leadership Academy Middle School.
A great overview article on using visual literacy strategies... but also a great lesson outline for a social studies lesson on civil rights.
