Students explore the evolution of the international community’s response to genocide and examine how the U.S. has responded to six cases of genocide.
Teaching About Genocide and Human Rights to Address Massachusetts’ An Act Concerning Genocide Education
Massachusetts recently passed a bill requiring middle and high schools to include instruction about human rights and the history of genocide. That bill will be implemented after July 1, 2022. This online workshop will provide an introduction to two curriculum units, Confronting Genocide: Never Again? and Competing Visions of Human Rights: Questions for U.S. Policy, as well as selected other resources from the Choices Program. We’ll also discuss implementation strategies.
“The genocide unit provides a perfect synopsis of genocides. I can trust Choice’s content without having to worry about bias. Paired with content from the human rights unit, it makes an amazing basis for a unit.” – Mary, History Teacher, Oregon
Cost: $45. The registration fee includes a one-year Digital Editions subscription to the Choices Program’s Confronting Genocide: Never Again? unit and the Competing Visions of Human Rights: Questions for U.S. Policy unit. A two-hour certificate of attendance will be provided, which reflects a half hour of pre-workshop preparation.
