This webinar will help you get started with Facing History and Ourselves’ case study, Holocaust and Human Behavior, through exploring multimedia resources, readings, and teaching strategies that engage students in this powerful history and the themes of decision making, ethics, and responsibility through the lens of human behavior.
Using our new Getting Started with Holocaust and Human Behavior self-paced online workshop as a guide, this interactive webinar will focus on providing lesson ideas and support to middle and high school teachers who may have a limited amount of class time to teach about the history of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.
