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 Genocides with the Choices Program’s Confronting Genocide Curriculum
Join the Choices Program to learn about the newly revised Confronting Genocide: Never Again? unit, which includes a new case study on the OvaHerero-Nama genocide as well as new lessons on risk assessment and mitigation, historical memory, and reparative justice. We’ll consider ways that these new lessons can support students’ ability to analyze arguments as well as sharpen their skills to create, defend, and apply their own arguments. Lessons also explore the concept of historical memory and apply the concept to real world discussions on addressing the legacies of genocides.
Participants will receive a six-month Digital Editions license to the Confronting Genocide: Never Again? curriculum unit.
All educators are welcome to attend. This webinar is especially appropriate for World History teachers and those who currently teach or plan to teach a course on the Holocaust or genocide.
