Description

This week-long educator workshop will provide an introduction to the legal and social concepts of genocide, as well as historical and contemporary examples of genocide and mass violence, such as the Armenia, Cambodia, Rwanda, and Bosnian genocides and the Holocaust. Additional case studies will examine the current genocide against Rohingya and the genocide of Indigenous peoples in North America. Participants will build content and pedagogical knowledge to feel knowledgeable and confident teaching about genocide in both middle and high school classrooms.

Sessions will be facilitators by university professors, advanced Ph.D. students, and veteran educators. Participants will not only have the opportunity to engage in small group settings with these experts, but they will also listen to a Holocaust survivor and learn from the local Armenian, Cambodian, and Native American communities about the legacies of genocide and memorialization efforts. Participants will receive classroom resources, lesson and unit plans, and continuing education credit. 

Any K-16 educator, pre-service teacher, graduate or undergraduate students interested in education and/or genocide, and community educators are invited to participate.
