Join us for a workshop on teaching Rising Out Of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist by the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Eli Saslow. Saslow's book details how a small community of college students helped change the heart and mind of the heir apparent to America's white nationalist movement. This workshop will be complemented by a conversation with Eli Saslow at the Orpheum Theater. Educators who attend this workshop will be expected to bring their students to this conversation on October 28, 2019.
In this workshop you will:
- Receive one free copy of the book Rising Out Of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist
- Engage in interdisciplinary teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and participate in civil discourse on controversial topics
- Increase your ability to facilitate respectful classroom discussions on difficult issues such as racism, antisemitism, and other forms of exclusion in a way that invites personal reflection and critical analysis
After this workshop you will:
- Receive coaching and support as you implement this unit in your classroom
- 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 online tools
- Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost
- Be eligible to receive a free class set of books and complimentary seats for your students to attend a presentation with Eli Saslow on October 28, 2019 at the Orpheum. Workshop attendees will be expected to bring their students to this presentation. Schools are responsible for transportation of students to and from the presentation.
This workshop is intended for teachers of students in grades 8-12.
