How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as by caring, compassion, and responsibility? Using Facing History’s unique methodology, we will examine the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy and ultimately the murder of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. Participants will investigate the complexities of human behaviour, judgment, memory, and how individuals can make a difference in the world today.
In this seminar you will discover new teaching strategies, classroom activities, and multimedia resources to use in the classroom. Upon completion, participants will receive complete access to Facing History’s educator resources, including downloadable unit plans, lessons, and online conversations and will become part of the Educator Network with access to videos, DVDs, and books through the lending library. Each participant is assigned a Facing History Programme Associate who is available to provide ongoing support services at no cost.
This seminar is recommended for teachers of history, citizenship, religious education (RE), English, and PSHE teachers and can provide approaches to support the important cross curricular strand of Spiritual, Moral, Social, and Cultural (SMSC) education.
This seminar also supports the International Baccalaureate approach to learning in the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP).
