Facing History for Non-Humanities Educators from Partnering Schools

Course Type:
Event Fee:

This one-day workshop is for administrators and K-12 non-humanities educators from partner schools. You will learn “beginning of the year” strategies that help  build community with students. You will also explore ways that Facing History can support vertical and horizontal alignment.


Learn how to use Facing History’s themes and vocabulary to shape a school-wide understanding of how students’ identities impact their academic performance, the different ways in which students may feel  excluded in schools, and explore strategies to engage students’ sense of agency.


Participants in this workshop will:

  • Collaborate with colleagues that are already part of the Facing History Network of Partner Schools to strengthen a school-wide approach to Facing History
  • Explore Facing History resources that can be used with younger audiences and/or in non-humanities classes
  • Learn student-centered strategies to help create classroom and school environments where students can engage with each other
  • Build knowledge of Facing History vocabulary such as identity, membership, and choosing to participate and learn how those terms help inform school-wide practices

After this workshop, you will become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia.

Administrators and K-12 educators  outside the humanities from partner schools are invited to apply. There are no fees, and teachers are eligible for 7 clock hours for full participation.
