How can literature, as part of an interdisciplinary approach, add to our understanding of history?
In this workshop we will model Facing History’s pedagogical approach to the humanities by focusing on literature and film to teach about the Holocaust, including Salvaged Pages, Night, Anton the Dove Fancier, Children of Willesden Lane, and I Promised I Would Tell.
These different forms of literature, ranging from non-fiction to memoirs and poetry, engage students in learning about the Holocaust. Participants will also learn different literacy and discussion strategies aimed at engaging students in the use of literature.
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.
Space is limited; registration does not guarantee admission. You may be contacted by a Facing History staff member to discuss your application. Scholarships are available.
