Teaching the Nanjing Atrocities

In collaboration with the Chinese International School, Facing History and Ourselves is offering a one day workshop for international school educators on teaching the atrocities at Nanjing. The content focus is ideal for Individuals & Societies and Social Studies teachers, as well as teachers of literature teaching WWII or histories of mass violence.

Using Facing History and Ourselves' multimedia resource The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War, educators will explore a rich collection of primary sources in the form of diaries, maps, videos, and timelines to place the Nanjing Atrocities within the larger context of World War II in East Asia, and consider the complex questions this history raises about wartime violence, justice, legacy, and memory.  

Instructors will model Facing History and Ourselves' pedagogical approach through various teaching strategies to create a student centered learning experience when teaching this difficult but important history.    

In this workshop you will:

  • Receive a copy of The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War

  • Learn a new pedagogical model for teaching

  • Gain access to multimedia resources

  • Network and learn with other international school educators interested in teaching this difficult history

This workshop will be held at the Chinese International School, Hong Kong. For information regarding the location please email Mala Uttam at [email protected].
