Description

This four-day-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 Armenian, Cambodian, Rwandan, and Bosnian genocides and Holodomor and the Holocaust. Additional case studies will examine the current genocide against Rohingya and the genocide of Indigenous peoples in North America. The workshop will focus specifically on how to navigate individual and social trauma within the classroom. Sessions will be facilitated by expert University of Minnesota faculty and advanced graduate students, as well as local community members. 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 build content and pedagogical knowledge to feel knowledgeable and confident teaching about genocide in both middle and high school classrooms. Participants will receive classroom resources, lesson and unit plans, and continuing education credit. 2 graduate credits are available for an additional cost.
