As part of an ongoing initiative to promote Human Rights Education in K-12 classrooms, the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center and the UNESCO Chair & Institute of Comparative Human Rights have partnered to provide resources for teachers seeking to integrate human rights principles and outcomes into their curricula. This one-day workshop will provide participants with expert guidance along with lesson resources and materials necessary to teaching the holocaust and genocide from a global perspective.
Guided by the UNESCO Chair-holder from Israel and other experts, this workshop will consist of a review of the relationship between holocaust and genocide education and human rights education; a presentation of the current standards and practices in various countries in the context of current US and CT standards; and an engagement with new theories, resources, and approaches for the classroom. Outcomes for participants will include new capacity for curriculum design appropriate for a variety of grades and content areas, access to resources and materials for use in the classroom, and ongoing support for professional development in human rights education through the Dodd Center.
Enrollment is open to both pre-service and in-service teachers of all grades and content areas, but workshop examples and tools will be most appropriate to Language Arts and Social Studies instructors at the middle and high school level.
