Curricula in Development

SPICE draws upon the diverse faculty and programmatic interests of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University. All of our materials are developed to reflect the scholarship and research interests of FSI faculty members, who serve as scholarly advisors for our curricula.

Since these curricula are still in development, the titles below are working titles and are used for descriptive purposes only.

If you are interested in either fieldtesting (using the lesson with your students) or reviewing (reading through the lesson and offering pedagogical feedback/suggestions without student participation) any curriculum modules from this list, fill out our online form.

For all other questions regarding sales please contact the sales office.


Mineta Legacy Project

Unit in Development

As a 10-year-old boy from San Jose, Norman Mineta was among the ~110,000 people of Japanese ancestry who were removed from their homes during World War II and forced into what were referred to by the U.S. government as “war relocation centers.” Sixty years later, he was among the 16 people in the Cabinet of the United States, advising the U.S. President.

Although Norman Mineta’s life and career in public service have been anything but ordinary, his experiences embody broad themes that span the social studies curriculum—themes such as immigration, civic engagement, civil liberties, and government. SPICE is developing free video-accompanied lessons to help students explore these themes in the high school classroom. Appropriate for high school and community college students.
