This interactive self-paced workshop will support you in teaching a short unit of study of Holocaust and Human Behavior.
In today’s global climate, the urgency of sustaining democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence is more pressing than ever. Our resource, Holocaust and Human Behavior allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history while fostering their skills in ethical and moral reasoning, critical analysis, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical habits of mind for sustaining democracy.
This three part series will draw on Facing History’s Witnesses to History Memoir Collection, to explore ways to engage youth in thinking about identity, reflecting on the impact of history on individuals and groups, and analyzing adolescent choices. The third session will feature Nicole Chung, author of All You Can Ever Know.
This workshop is intended for middle and high school teachers in the New York/New Jersey area. NY participants will receive CTLE hours and NJ participants can get PD hours upon completion.
