Bursaries covering the full cost are available for this seminar - see below for further details and how to apply.

Join us for a two-day seminar to learn about Facing History’s approach to teaching the Holocaust, which supports students in developing as empathetic, critical thinkers, who understand their role in sustaining democracy and upholding democratic values.

In this online two-day seminar exploring Holocaust and Human Behaviour, teachers will:

  • Learn current scholarship on the history of the Holocaust and new research focused on human behaviour, group dynamics, and bias;
  • 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;
  • Learn a new way of structuring curriculum to help students connect history to their own lives and the choices they make;
  • Engage with classroom-ready multimedia resources and learn how to build a customised unit that meets your curriculum objectives;
  • Discover new teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully.

This seminar is intended for secondary school teachers who are looking for different ways to teach the Holocaust and other challenging materials to their students, and is designed to give you an in-depth understanding of our pedagogy. Designed for History, RS, Citizenship and English teachers, it will provide classroom-ready materials and resources for Key Stages 3 and 4, including PowerPoint lessons.

Independent evaluation has shown that implementing Facing History’s approach improves students’ critical thinking skills, increases students’ ability and confidence to participate in community action, and increases students’ tolerance for others who hold contrary views from their own.
