Join us for a one-hour interactive workshop that will connect you to other teachers and provide you with activities and resources that invite students' identities into classrooms and enable students to explore the ways our identities shape and are shaped by society.
Conversations about who we are and what influences our identities not only serve as foundations for equity-centered classrooms; they foster greater community connection, academic engagement, and prepare students for deeper dialogue and understanding of humanity and history.
This is the first workshop in the Facing History Foundations Series, which intends to invite interaction with Facing History and Ourselves’ core curriculum resources and small group educator conversations. Through sharing practices and dialogue, each workshop will hone specific teaching topics and practices, and prepare participants to engage students more effectively with the Holocaust or other histories of identity-based violence.
Subsequent workshops in this series will explore themes of membership and antisemitism, choices in times of injustice, Holocaust memoir and testimony, and inspiring upstanders.
If you are unfamiliar with Facing History and Ourselves’ scope and sequence, and contracting / community agreements, please familiarize yourself with these topics before the first workshop.
Registration for this workshop will be limited.
