An opportunity for teachers!

Casper, Wyoming

Workshops are completely interactive, so be ready to be engaged and inspired!

Participants will be immersed in a workshop that is focused on how to incorporate two of Brown University’s Choices Program’s curriculum units, which focus on important contemporary issues in global studies, into existing coursework:  Both units are provided. Participants will discuss ways to adapt these units to specific classroom goals.

The Middle East: Questions for U.S. Policy equips students to consider the role of U.S. policy in the Middle East.

Nigeria: History, Identity, and Change invites students to explore the history of Africa’s most populous country and Nigeria as a global actor.

QFI will present its teaching materials on the history and culture of the Arab World.

Participants will also hear from the Wyoming Geographic Alliance on local resources and opportunities and network with exemplary colleagues in social studies education from across the area.
