Building Understanding and Compassion While Teaching History and Current Events
Many teachers and youth workers are unsure of how to cover sensitive topics in the news or historical events like 9/11 or the Holocaust, especially with diverse groups. Concerns range from accidentally singling out students to having to address emotions, biases, perceptions and misconceptions. Many adults find these topics difficult to discuss among peers, let alone with children and youth. This workshop offers the tools needed to discuss sensitive topics in an inclusive and productive manner. This learning module includes:
- 30-minute planning session via videoconference
- 2-hour in-person, interactive workshop
- 2-hour on-site follow-up to observe staff and provide feedback
- Written action plan with further resources and next steps
Audience: Teachers, group leaders, and anyone working directly with children and youth
