Facing History and Ourselves: Holocaust and Human Behavior
August 8, 2016 @ 08:30 AM - 04:30 PM|$550
How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as by caring, compassion, and responsibility? Using Facing History's interdisciplinary approach to citizenship education, we will examine the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy in Germany and ultimately to the persecution of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. We will move from thought to judgment to participation as we confront the moral questions inherent in a study of violence, racism, antisemitism and bigotry. Recommended for 6-12th grade U.S. history, world history, humanities, or English language arts teachers committed to implementing a four-week (or more!) Facing History unit. Illinois Educators can earn 35 Clock Hours for full participation in this course.
