China on the World Stage: Weighing the U.S. Response
Tuesday, May 19, 5-6pm PST

Participants will be introduced to a unit which explores the history of U.S. relations with China and considers the implications of China’s economic growth, societal transformation, and increasing international role.


The United States in Afghanistan
Wednesday, May 27, 5-6pm PST

Participants will be introduced to a unit which explores the history, culture, and geography of Afghanistan, including the arrival of the Taliban and al Qaeda and the U.S. role there since 2001.

Confronting Genocide: Never Again?
Tuesday, June 9, 5-6pm PST

Participants will be introduced to a unit which explores the evolution of the international community’s response to genocide and examine how the U.S. has responded to six cases of genocide.


The Choices Program draws on scholarship from Brown University to produce innovative curricula and videos that make contested international issues accessible, engaging, and relevant to secondary school audiences.

Supported by the Center for Global Studies, East Asia Center, South Asia Center, and Southeast Asia Center at the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington, these units will help you make the transition to online schooling. 

Registration is free and available on a first come first served basis. Register now for one, two, or all three webinars.

Up to 30 participants per webinar will receive a free two-year digital edition license of the featured Choices curriculum unit. To be eligible for this opportunity, teachers must submit a short implementation plan after participating in the webinar (only one free unit per teacher will be awarded). Units are also available for purchase directly from the Choices Program.
