This hour-long webinar will introduce teachers to:
- An overview of the 15-lesson unit, with lesson activities from its classroom-ready multimedia resources;
- Teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully; and
- A new way of structuring curriculum to help students connect history to their own lives and the choices they make.
Independent evaluation has shown that implementing Facing History’s approach improves students’ critical thinking skills, increases students’ ability and confidence to participate in community action, and increases students’ tolerance for others who hold contrary views to their own.
