Opportunities for San Diego Teachers

Posted by Facing History and Ourselves on March 22, 2016

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 
* Explore topics such as identity, empathy, justice, and the role of memory 
* Receive a free copy of Crimes Against Humanity and Civilization: the Armenian Genocide 

After this workshop you will: 
* Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia 
* Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost
