Join Facing History and Ourselves for an interactive, three-part webinar series on teaching about the Holocaust in middle school settings. Many teachers want their students to achieve emotional engagement with the history of the Holocaust and therefore teach this history with the goal of fostering empathy. Emotional engagement with difficult material takes time and often teachers are unsure how to include images and films from the Holocaust that some students might find emotionally disturbing.
Facing History and Ourselves’ seminal case study, Holocaust and Human Behavior, includes a vast array of new scholarship, primary source material, images, videos, and audio that can be scaffolded for a middle school audience.
In this first webinar in our three-part series geared specifically toward middle school educators we will:
Examine how to use images to support middle school students’ understanding of key themes in the history of the rise of the Nazis
Model particular teaching strategies geared toward helping middle school students analyze historical images
