In today’s world, questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history and fosters their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical for sustaining democracy. In this half-day workshop featuring the fully revised, printed edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior—teachers will:

  • Be introduced to Facing History's newly revised Holocaust and Human Behavior resource.

  • Familiarize themselves with the new digital assets including video, playlists and online materials.

This workshop is intended for middle and high school teachers of history, literature and humanities. Independent evaluation has shown that implementing Facing History’s approach improves students’ higher-order thinking skills, increases students’ civic efficacy and engagement with civic matters, and increases students’ tolerance for others who hold contrary views from their own.

In this workshop you will:

  • Receive a free copy of Holocaust and Human Behavior

After this workshop you will:

  • 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 multimedia
  • Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost
