HELP YOUR STUDENTS TO MAKE SENSE OF THEIR WORLD
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.

"NORTH KOREA AND NUCLEAR WEAPONS" - FREE CURRICULUM FROM THE WEB
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>.

Please feel free to pass this information and the URL on to anyone you think will find it helpful. There is also a link from our "Teaching with the News" page at http://www.choices.edu/curriculum_twtn.cfm
