Beginning a New School Year in the San Francisco Bay Area

August 31, 2016

Dear Friends:

We realize that the classroom is not immune from current events and many students have questions about how to interpret the world around them, particularly as they return to school this week. Facing History is proud to be a partner with schools to help teachers guide these conversations. Our tools have become a valuable resource for educators and community leaders who are committed to empowering students to become informed, engaged, and active citizens in our democracy.

We have a number of timely and relevant ways for you to stay engaged and involved with us throughout the year. Check out our calendar and join us an in-person or online event. We also have new initiatives we’re excited to share in the list below. If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to our blog, Facing Today. Facing Today brings together an international community of mindful and creative educators, students, and thought leaders who are exploring topics and issues at the heart of our work.

Most of all, we hope you take time to read, reflect, and participate with us this coming school year. We’re looking forward to another great year with you!
