    Civil Rights Historical Investigations

    The American Civil Rights Movement was a watershed moment for our nation. This workshop will explore ways to engage students in the issues raised by this moment in history. 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 and they also learn to connect this history meaningfully to contemporary events.

    Stolen Lives: Exploring the Indian Boarding School Movement 1879 - 1972

    What is the legacy of the Indian Boarding School Movement? Together we will examine the complex issues of identity, particularly the differences between how a group defines itself vs. how others perceive it.  We will consider case studies of two all-Indian boarding schools, Richard Pratt's Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania and the Thomas Indian School in New York, and the schools' attempts to “Americanize” indigenous students. We will wrestle with questions of cultural genocide, the legacy of the boarding school movement, and its impact on Native American communities.

    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.

    Holocaust and Human Behavior

    How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as by caring, compassion, and responsibility?  Using Facing History's interdisciplinary approach to citizenship education, we will examine the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy in Germany and ultimately to the persecution of millions of Jews and other targeted groups.  We will move from thought to judgement to participation as we confront the moral questions inherent in a study of violence, racism, antisemitism and bigotry.
