History is Not Inevitable
Facing History students examine pivotal moments in history and learn how the choices made in the past have shaped our present. Our students come to understand that history is not inevitable: people make choices and choices make history.
Current Events in Your Classroom
We provide the tools and resources for teachers and their students to place current events in a historical context. This approach helps students make sense of the world around them and become informed and active participants in a democracy.
Learn more about how current events discussions help students learn. Or, dive into our Collection of current events classroom resources.
