This workshop will help educators address current issues of diversity and difference and inform their understanding of current refugee crises throughout the world. We will examine historical case studies involving refugees, connect them to current events, and raise essential questions about identity, belonging, and citizenship.
We will model pedagogical approaches and tools that are central to a safe and reflective Facing History classroom. These can be used to engage your class in discussions of the individual and society, universe of obligation, painful histories and other controversial current events.
All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Stories of Identity.
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
