Online Options

Online courses. Become a fully trained Facing History teacher by taking a multi-week online course. Educators that complete a Facing History online course become part of our Educator Network with access to the complete Facing History website, our extensive lending library, and one-on-one support from a Facing History program associate. Online courses can be taken for graduate credit.

Online workshops.  Take an in-depth look at themes of antisemitism, bullying, civic participation, and moral decision making with one of our weeklong online workshops. Workshops explore Facing History resources that explore such works as the memoir Red Scarf Girl, the civil rights documentary Freedom Riders, or the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and are designed for you to go at your own pace. Access content, discussion forums, and strategies when it’s convenient for you, with full support of Facing History staff.

Webinars. Sign up for a free webinar to explore Facing History themes and hear from guest speakers and experts on topics including civil rights, the Holocaust, and immigration. Past webinar guests include Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sonia Nazario, Holocaust survivors, filmmakers and activists (The List), and veterans of the American civil rights movement. Other webinars provide focused discussion of Facing History pedagogy, teaching strategies, and educational trends. Our webinars are recorded for those who cannot attend and many can be found archived on our website.
