    Democracy at Risk: 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 seminar features the fully revised, digital edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior and is intended for upper middle and high school social studies, civics, and humanities teachers.

    Civil Rights Movement: Choices from Mendez to Little Rock to Today

    This workshop will explore ways to engage students in the issues raised by the Civil Rights Movement. By studying the choices that led to critical episodes in that struggle, students learn to analyze history using a lens of how identity, group membership, ethics, and moral judgements have influenced historical events. They can then  also learn to connect this history meaningfully to contemporary events.
