Educators are invited to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day with this meaningful professional development opportunity.   In today’s world, the urgency of sustaining democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust using Facing History’s approach allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by history about today while fostering their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement - all of which are critical for sustaining democracy. This workshop, bridging Facing History’s Holocaust and Human Behavior resource with current event content, will enable educators to support their own adult learning and provide strategies that can be used with students.  Dinner will be provided.
