Holocaust Museum Houston presents Geography & Genocide Teacher Workshop
What is genocide? This term is used in headlines all over the world, but what does it mean? And what can people do to stop it?
As part of Genocide Awareness Month, Holocaust Museum Houston will provide a one-day workshop examining genocide worldwide. This workshop will examine current and past genocides, as well as how to teach about this important topic. Using primary source materials, fiction and non-fiction literature, film segments, and art, participants will be prepared to make pedagogical choices as they implement studies related to genocide.
Time also will be spent considering the role of the U.S. in genocide prevention, with a focus on how to affect real change from your classroom. This program will meet the TEKS requirements for Social Studies (particularly World History and Geography) and English/Language Arts teachers in grades three through 12. Art and music educators who wish to incorporate these histories in their studies also may wish to consider attending.
