How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as caring, compassion, and responsibility? Using Facing History’s unique sequence of study, educators will explore the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy and, ultimately, the murder of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. The workshop examines the complexities of human behavior, judgment, memory, and civic participation.
Participants receive curriculum resources and student-centered teaching strategies that are aligned to the Common Core, as well as free access to Facing History's extensive lending library of DVD and multimedia resources and individualized curriculum support. This workshop is intended for middle and high school educators who intend to bring Facing History content, themes, and approaches into their classrooms. $250 registration fee includes lunch and materials; scholarships are available.
