Holocaust & Human Behavior Workshop

In today’s world, questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history and fosters their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical for sustaining democracy. In this one-day workshop—featuring the fully revised, digital edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior—teachers will:

  • Learn current scholarship on the history of the Holocaust and new research focused on human behavior, group dynamics, and bias
  • Increase their ability to facilitate respectful classroom discussions on difficult issues such as racism, antisemitism, and other forms of exclusion in a way that invites personal reflection and critical analysis
  • Learn a new way of structuring curriculum to help students connect history to their own lives and the choices they make
  • Engage with classroom-ready multimedia resources and learn how to build a customized unit that meets your curriculum objectives
  • Discover new teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully

Middle and High School teachers can register at https://sdcoe.k12oms.org/eventdetail.php?gid=1014&id=137549 before January 24, 2018. Cost for individuals is $50, $45 for teams of 2 or more, $30 for preservice teachers. Fee includes continental breakfast, lunch, and materials.

CISP at Sonoma Presents- One Planet Youth Summit

One Planet Youth Summit where educator-student teams inspire on behalf of protecting our planet.

One Planet Youth Summit, where educator-student teams inspire other teams by sharing their authentic global learning and active citizenship on behalf of protecting our planet. 

Educators and students are positioned as teams because we are all adapting to a changing world alongside one another; we cannot afford to work in silos based on age, experience or expertise. We are all in this together. The One Planet Youth Summit creates space for educators and students to come together to share their learning, to challenge each other and themselves with new ideas, and to make connections between projects and to the bigger picture.

“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

The One Planet Youth Summit experience allows for the illumination of Dr. King’s quote, as we come together to see how all life and all actions are interrelated, how we all play a role, and how we all have a place in this world.

WHY ATTEND THE ONE PLANET YOUTH SUMMIT?

The ability to put knowledge into action is critical in today’s world; the One Planet Youth Summit is a venue that allows educators and students to see how the actions they take are a critical piece of a larger effort to build a culture of sustainability that goes far beyond their school and local community. Applying and sharing knowledge, skills and experiences in order to contribute to this culture of sustainability, creates the conditions for universal access to basic human rights- an end goal of a truly global and progressive education.

The International Studies Project in Long Beach and Los Angeles and Facing History and Ourselves: Empathy, Journalism, and Civic Engagement

  • 322 Lucas Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90017 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Under what conditions do people care about others? When does that care translate into thoughtful action? What are the responsibilities of citizens to participate in their communities—local, national, and global?  Explore these ideas at this workshop co-hosted by the California International Studies Project.

The documentary Reporter, which follows New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof as he works to get his readers to “care about what happens on the other side of the hill,” raises these questions about the role of the reporter. In our current day, students are media producers in their own right - with blogs and social media being an essential component of journalism today. Receive Common Core-aligned strategies and resources produced by Facing History and Ourselves to explore the role of the media and the impetus for civic engagement required by a vibrant democracy.

In this workshop, you will discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies that reinforce critical thinking in examining historical events and literary tracts.

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.
