The Choices 2012 Summer Leadership Institute provides teachers with an opportunity to examine the concept of human rights and the challenges of enforcing human rights at an international level. Using the Choices curriculum unit, Competing Visions of Human Rights: Challenges for U.S. Policy, participants will learn from leading scholars in the fields of international law and foreign policy, explore effective instructional strategies for engaging students in the topic, and share best practices with other dedicated and innovative teachers. Time is also allocated to discuss and plan new ways to conduct educational outreach, which is a requirement of the Leadership Institute.
There is no charge for the Leadership Institute. Meals, housing, reading materials and a certificate of completion are provided. Participants pay their own round trip travel.
Applications are due by Friday, March 16, 2012.
