The Choices Program at Brown University offers professional development and curricula on current and historical international issues. For example:
- Black Lives Matter: Continuing the Civil Rights Movement
- Freedom Now: The Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi
The mission for Choices is “to empower young people with the skills, knowledge, and participatory habits to be engaged citizens who are capable of addressing international issues through thoughtful public discourse and informed decision making.”
While Choices takes a more mainstream political position than the Zinn Education Project, the program offers a very useful selection of student-friendly readings and video clips for teachers building a people’s history curriculum.
