Capitol Forum Indiana (CFI) Curriculum

The Capitol Forum curriculum was developed by The Choices Program at the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University.

The central question of the curriculum is "What role should the United States play in the changing international environment of the 21st century?" Through a variety of learning activities, many of which are experiential, students learn content and skills to enable them to answer this question. Two different workshops provide teachers with professional development to help effectively deliver this curriculum.

The curriculum can be used in a variety of social studies and English/language arts courses. It is flexible and meets many state standards.

Teacher quotes:

"Standards are met in a more interesting, 'real-life' atmosphere that engages the students and forces them to put their views forward."

"These meet part of my standards as I teach English (American studies). I will expand the research component next year."

"It also meets the standards for Geography and History of the World - standards of conflict/cooperation to colonialism and trade and commerce."

"Easy to work in since standards are so broad."
