    Fostering Civil Discourse, Part 1

    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 workshop features the fully revised, digital edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior and is intended for middle and high school teachers.
