April 24, 2015, will mark the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. Please join us for a workshop that will prepare you to commemorate this important date in your classroom.
We will be joined by author Marsha Skrypuch who will discuss the research behind her newest novel, Dance of the Banished, about the Armenian Genocide from the perspective of Zeynep, an Alevi Kurd witness and rescuer.
In this workshop participants will:
- Discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies and classroom activities that reinforce historical and literacy skills
- Receive a free copy of Crimes Against Humanity and Civilization: The Genocide of the Armenians
Marsha Skrypuch is well known for her books that show the effects of 20th century war and genocide from the perspective of young people. Her nineteen books have garnered more than sixty awards and honours. She has written four young adult novels set during the Armenian Genocide and also two books that approach the topic for younger children.
Due to a generous grant, we are pleased to be able to waive the registration fee.
If the fee has already been paid, it will be refunded.
