Conference Session

Teaching About Genocide: “Never Again” is Now

10:20 am — 11:20 am
NCCSS Conference Session

How can we engage students in the study of genocides around the world and build historical empathy when the topic seems distant from their lives? How can we empower students to address this neverending problem? Join the Choices Program at the North Carolina Council for the Social Studies conference to explore the readings, lessons, and videos included in our secondary-level Confronting Genocide: Never Again? curriculum unit. Case studies in the unit include the Holocaust, and the OvaHerero-Nama, Armenian, Cambodian, Bosnian, and the Rwandan genocides, as well as the genocide in Sudan.

Visit the North Carolina Council for the Social Studies website for a conference description and registration information.

The location of this session will be announced during the week before the conference.
