Online Workshop

Teaching About Genocide and Human Rights to Address Massachusetts’ An Act Concerning Genocide Education

7:00 pm — 8:30 pm
Online Workshop

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
