This workshop features the 2017 edition of Facing History's groundbreaking resource book, Holocaust and Human Behavior, fully revised with new scholarship, primary documents, and rich illustrations. We will model the use of these interactive resources toward the creation of an engaging Holocaust and Human Behavior unit or course of study. Studying the Holocaust using Facing History’s approach 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.
