In partnership with Facing History and Ourselves: Understanding history and it lessons is integral to an understanding of the condition of being human and to our students’ role as engaged and civically minded citizens. But over a century of multiple genocides and human rights atrocities on multiple continents offers a bleak verdict; sometimes even current events can leave us despairing. What insights can the humanities and the social sciences bring to the table? How might the lessons of the 1930s and 1940s inform and instruct us today? How can other historical examples and today’s headlines offer “teachable moments” in the classroom and community? How might we engage our students in difficult conversation about racism, dangerous speech, targeting of minorities, and rising antisemitism? Join IHMEC and Dr. Mary Johnson, Senior Historian at Facing History and Ourselves, as together we engage in personal reflection, explore strategies for facilitating difficult conversations, and receive a toolkit of strategies that promote critical thinking to address the sometimes challenging learning of history in today’s 21st century classroom. Workshop includes: Breakfast and Lunch Classroom Resources and Materials 5 (Clock Hours) CPDUs

This is an advanced training recommended for professionals who currently provide direct service to preschool aged children in early childhood education and care (ECEC) settings. In this training, participants will review the definition, aspects, and importance of play. Key concepts to participating productively in play with children will be introduced and demonstrated. Participants will then have the opportunity to practice these skills via role play with other participants in simulated ECEC environments with real early childhood toys and materials. Participants’ understanding of productive interaction in children’s play will be supported through instructor facilitation, hands-on experience, and video examples.
