In today’s world, questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history and fosters their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical for sustaining democracy.

 

In this workshop featuring the fully revised, digital edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior—teachers will:

  • Learn current scholarship on the history of the Holocaust and new research focused on human behavior, 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
  • Engage with classroom-ready multimedia resources
  • Discover new teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully

This workshop is intended for upper middle and high school social studies, English/Language Arts and humanities teachers.

Dinner will be served, and teachers will receive 3.5 clock hours for full participation.
