Students explore the evolution of the international community’s response to genocide and examine how the U.S. has responded to multiple cases of genocide.
Teaching About Genocide: “Never Again” is Now
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.
