About this event:

Single Session

Our single professional learning sessions are designed to easily fit into your day. Typically one hour or less, these sessions explore timely and relevant topics including teaching strategies, current events, and more.

Instructor-Led

This professional learning event will be led by Facing History staff. When you register, you will receive instructions for how to attend the event.

Remembrance Day provides us with an opportunity to memorialise and honour those who have died in conflict from World War One to the present day. It is important to create space to reflect on past conflicts and acknowledge their cost to humanity. It is also important to provide time and space to reflect on how we teach history, exploring who, what and how we choose to remember. This not only enables us to consider different voices and stories, but also helps us to think about the lessons that we can learn from our past. 

Join us for a one-hour conversation to explore how we can engage with our history in a way that acknowledges different experiences and perspectives, and reflect upon its relevance in the present day. 

This event is aimed at teachers in the UK.
