The Choices Program is a national education initiative affiliated with the Brown University Department of History. The Choices Program produces content for secondary school social studies classrooms on historic and contemporary issues. Through its content and programs for teachers, the Choices Program seeks to:
- Democratize knowledge and provide accessible educational resources in order to reach diverse classrooms from all corners of the United States and beyond.
- Create content and programming that emphasizes building historical thinking skills.
- Create curriculum materials that foster the skills for students and teachers to be critical consumers of information and engaged global citizens.
- Take advantage of new research and scholarship that challenges how history is understood and provides new insight into the dynamics that shape the world.
- Challenge traditional narratives and broaden understandings of history and current events.
- Produce narratives that are relevant to all communities, including ones that have been underrepresented in high school social studies curriculum and programming.
