Engaging & Effective Learning Experiences
Facing History engages adolescents during a critical time in their development. Our classrooms integrate the study of history and literature with innovative teaching strategies. We encourage students to explore identity and human behavior, reflect on the choices they confront in their own lives today, and consider how they can make a positive difference.
Positive Student Outcomes
English Language Arts and Social Studies educators have long understood the power of Facing History to engage students. Our impact data proves it. In a randomized controlled trial, Facing History was shown to significantly increase
- students' tolerance for others who hold different views,
- their awareness of the dangers of prejudice and antisemitism, and
- their perception of their classroom as having a positive climate
Facing History students are more civically involved than their peers and have stronger skills for analyzing history.
