After studying difficult histories, people often wonder how they can help bring about a more humane, just, compassionate world and a more democratic society. We will examine examples of individuals and groups who have made moral choices and chosen to speak out or take action in times of injustice. Through both historical and contemporary stories of upstanders, students can think about the ways they can participate as caring, thoughtful citizens in the world around us.

In this workshop you will:

  • Examine how lessons and culminating projects can empower students to create change
  • Gain new teaching strategies that engage students in democratic participation
  • Explore topics such as moral decision making, upstander behavior, and choosing to participate
  • Consider the ways that history educates us about our responsibilities today
  • Receive a free copy of the new edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior

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.

We thank Hamilton Wentworth District School Board for providing the venue for this workshop. Educators from all school boards are welcome to register.
