How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as by caring, compassion, and responsibility? In this course we will consider issues such as identity, membership, and judgment while learning about the Holocaust as well as other histories of collective violence.  We will explore ways to address young people’s concerns about exclusion and inclusion and stereotyping using the lens of history.  The seminar will conclude by exploring what it means to be an active citizen in a democracy.

The learning strategies that will be shared in this seminar are applicable to the Ontario curriculum and can be used by teachers of history and other social sciences, English, arts, media, philosophy, and politics.  Participants will gain strategies, resources and skills to bring rich inquiry and meaningful dialogue into their classrooms.
