Teaching Holocaust and Human Behavior

In today’s world, questions of how to build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust, and the fragile democracy that gave rise to the Nazi party, will enable students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history and fosters their skills in civic engagement, ethical reasoning, critical thinking, and empathy —all of which are critical for sustaining democracy. In this online seminar —featuring Holocaust and Human Behavior—teachers will:

  1. Learn current scholarship on the history of the Holocaust and new research focused on human behavior, group dynamics, and bias
  2. Learn a new way of structuring curriculum to help students connect history to their own lives and the choices they make
  3. Engage with classroom-ready multimedia resources and learn how to build a customized unit that meets your curriculum objectives
  4. Discover new teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully
  5. Increase their ability to facilitate respectful classroom discussions on difficult issues such as racism, antisemitism, and other forms of exclusion in a way that invites personal reflection and critical analysis

Taking place between Monday and Thursday over one calendar week, each offering is a real-time, interactive online classroom where participants will connect in facilitated whole and small group sessions. We estimate a time commitment of up to four hours a day for synchronous and asynchronous sessions.
