United Kingdom

The need for effective civic education is more crucial than ever before. 
Facing History is meeting this need.
In the UK, we reach 2,011 teachers across 350 schools, reaching an estimated 140,700 students each year.

Following the Brexit vote and terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, the incidence of hate crimes in the UK has risen significantly, highlighting the fragile nature of our democracy. Teachers are struggling to help support and guide students as they process reports of racism, bullying, prejudice and violence in their own communities and around the world.

 

We meet the need for effective civic education through a multi-pronged approach!

Lessons integrate history and citizenship education with a study of identity, community, and individual choice.

    Teaching in a Time of Terrorism

    Over the past few years, there have been many times when we've awakened to news of terrorism---close to home or far away. As an educator of adolescents, what do you do? How do you create a context for a conversation? When do you choose to scrap your daily lesson and focus on contemporary events? When do you pause for a moment and then carry on with your planned curriculum? This webinar addresses these questions and others, providing support for educators to think about what and how they will teach in a time of terror.
