7th Grade Exploratory Workshop

How is my identity shaped and reshaped by the individuals and circumstances I encounter in my life? Who is in my universe of obligation? Who is in my community’s universe of obligation? How can the stories we tell about ourselves and others lead to the creation of “in” groups and “out” groups? How can they create empathy and strengthen community?

This workshop will provide an instructional pathway for 7th grade educators to teach an 18-week Facing History course examining the catastrophic period in the twentieth century when Nazi Germany murdered 6 million Jews and millions of other civilians, in the midst of the most destructive war in human history. The 7th grade exploratory course content is based on the unit “Teaching Holocaust and Human Behavior” and the memoir Somewhere There Is Still a Sun.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Engage with classroom-ready multimedia resources and learn how to build a customized unit

  • Discover new teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss
    controversial issues respectfully

  • Receive a free copy of the Course Outline for the Memphis Exploratory Guide: Grade 7

After this workshop, you will:

  • Receive coaching and support as you implement this in your classroom

  • Become part of the Facing History Educator Network, with access to educator resources, including unit and lesson plans, study guides, and books & DVDs accessible through our free online lending library

This workshop is funded through the generosity of Plough Family Foundation
