HELP YOUR STUDENTS TO MAKE SENSE OF THEIR WORLD
"NORTH KOREA AND NUCLEAR WEAPONS" - FREE CURRICULUM FROM THE WEB
Are you looking for ways to engage your students responsibly
in consideration of the U.S. role in today's world?
The CHOICES Program has posted two free curriculum resources.
And we have a new web site. Come and see it.
In October 2002, North Korea admitted that it had been operating a secret
nuclear weapons program in violation of international treaties. Although Iraq
currently dominates much of the news, the United States has begun to discuss
the possible responses to North Korea. This lesson, developed by the Choices
Program at Brown University's Watson Institute for International Studies,
explores a range of contrasting policy options on this issue. It is designed
to help teachers to engage their students in consideration of this important
international issue. The lesson can be printed at no charge from the Choices
Program web site at http://www.choices.edu/korea.
- "CRISIS WITH IRAQ" - FREE CURRICULUM FROM THE WEB -
As the U.S. has moved closer to war with Iraq, the Choices Program has
continued to offer free curriculum resources that present a range of views on
the issue. This material may continue to be a helpful resource to help
students understand the choices made to date and consider the new choices that
will be before us in the days and weeks ahead. Crisis with Iraq is
available to print from the Choices Program web site at http://www.choices.edu/iraq.
For updated materials as events unfold, check the "Teaching with the
News" page from the Choices web site <http://www.choices.edu>.
