What is the responsibility of the international community when mass murder and genocide occurs?
2015 marked the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, but its legacy lives on. In these two days, hosted by the San Diego County Office of Education, we will examine the events leading up to the systematic murder of over one million Armenians, the role of justice and judgment in the aftermath of such atrocity, and the legacy of international justice in the world today.
Sign up for either or both sessions. This workshop is applicable for English/Language Arts, World History, US History, and Government classes.
In these workshops you will:
* Discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies that reinforce historical and literacy skills
