Engaging Students in International Issues with Model UN and the Choices Program
Friday, January 22, 2016
9:00am – 3:00pm
MCLE Building, 10 Winter Place
This is a participatory workshop, so come ready to be engaged and inspired! All materials, including the two curriculum units, lunch, and a 7-hour certificate of participation, are provided.
The cost is $145 ($75 for pre-service teachers) but I am working to get alliance members in for a nominal fee. Just email email@example.com if you are interested with the subject line “Middle East in Transition.”
During the workshop, you will:
- Be introduced to the Choices Program’s award-winning resources and approach to teaching about contested international issues;
- Examine and work with the Choices unit The Middle East in Transition: Questions for U.S. Policy and the UNAGB’s Diplomacy for Classrooms: Perspective Taking, Negotiation, and Consensus Building (provided);
- Network with exemplar colleagues in social studies education from across the region.
Who Should Attend: History, geography, government, civics, AP, IB, humanities and other social studies teachers are the target audience. Materials are appropriate for grades 7-12. We welcome teamed ELA and social studies teachers to attend together.
