How It Works

Every day, Facing History teachers and students deeply engage in their classrooms, bravely face history together, and actively participate in their communities.

Partnering with Educators

Shaping a better future requires a different kind of classroom.

What’s the difference between learning history and facing history?

Facing history is a way to connect history, identity, and choice.

Our Unique Approach

We combine a unique learning model with engaging and effective learning experiences. Our unique approach helps teachers and students meet a wide range of educational outcomes.

Our teachers create inclusive classrooms where students find their voice and develop an ethical and engaged civic identity. And, as our students explore history, they see how the past connects the world they live in, and how their choices today become our tomorrow.
