    Tools for Exploring Current Events: Workshop Series for Educators in Jewish Settings

    Engaging students with current events is a crucial part of their development as informed and humane citizens in a democracy. It can also pose challenges. The news cycle moves quickly, stories are complex, and the issues can spark strong emotions.  How can we prepare students to have reflective and respectful discussion of current events, especially those that may be controversial or divisive? How can we use these discussions as a means to develop students' capacity to be aware of bias and injustice, to make meaningful connections to their own communities and relationships, and to begin to feel their own agency and voice?

    Holocaust and Human Behavior

    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 using Facing History’s approach 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. This course features Holocaust and Human Behavior and is intended for educators.

    Re-engaging with Our Institutional Missions: A Conversation for School Leaders in Jewish Settings

    Due to near-instantaneous pivots to online learning, hybrid educational models and constantly changing initiatives for health and safety, many schools have needed to pause efforts that, while central to the school’s mission, were less urgent in this unprecedented time. Please join Facing History staff and fellow Jewish day school leaders as we learn strategies and evaluative tools that will help benchmark and track how we re-engage with our unique institutional missions and reconnect with longstanding goals.

    This workshop is intended for educational leadership and administration team members, including principals and heads of school.
