    Mini Course: Teaching Holocaust and Human Behaviour

    In today’s global climate, the urgency of sustaining democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence is more pressing than ever. Studying the Holocaust 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.

    Priority acceptance will be given to Canadian classroom educators teaching 7th - 12th grade Canadian and World History, Civics, Humanities, and English Language Arts.

    Facing Hate: Antisemitism, Race, and White Supremacy

    Understanding how concepts of race intersect with antisemitism is a critical task as we work to uproot white supremacy and racism from our schools.  Animosity against Jews took on a racial narrative when the first “Purity of Blood” laws were enacted against the Jewish community of Spain in 1449 and this idea continues to feed antisemitic ideologies today.
