    Helping Schools Confront Islamophobia

    Misconceptions and a lack of understanding dominate perceptions of Islam in many societies. In this workshop we will examine the impact of stereotypes, bias, discrimination, and hate crimes toward people perceived to be Muslim in both the United States and Europe. A recent reported uptick in hate crimes—especially those targeting Muslims—adds urgency to this conversation for both educators and students.

    Stories of Action and Creating Change from the New Holocaust and Human Behaviour

    After studying difficult histories, people often wonder how they can help bring about a more humane, just, compassionate world and a more democratic society. We will examine examples of individuals and groups who have made moral choices and chosen to speak out or take action in times of injustice. Through both historical and contemporary stories of upstanders, students can think about the ways they can participate as caring, thoughtful citizens in the world around us.

    Workshop
    California-Southern

    Democracy at Risk: a Forum Exploring Lessons from the Holocaust

    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 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. Holocaust and Human Behavior incorporates new scholarship, a broader range of perspectives, and a complex nuanced global view of the precursors, context, and legacy of this history.

    Facing Ferguson: News Literacy in a Digital Age

    The shooting of Michael Brown and the protests that followed became a flashpoint for the discussion about race, policing, and justice. Using the information aftermath of Ferguson and a new unit co-created by Facing History and Ourselves and the News Literacy Project, this workshop will examine how implicit biases shape our understanding of the world, and how news literacy skills and concepts can help students find reliable information to make decisions, take action, and become effective civic participants in today’s complex information landscape.
