Teaching for Safe and Inclusive Classrooms: Examining Bullying and Ostracism in Schools
Join us as we explore ways to address issues of bullying and student safety in schools.
This workshop will feature excerpts from the film Bully, the accompanying Facing
History study guide, A Guide to the Film BULLY: Fostering Empathy and Action in
Schools, and a number of other classroom-ready Facing History materials. These
resources will raise important questions about the impact of upstander behavior
and the responsibilities of all members of a school community in creating a safe and
respectful learning environment.

Holocaust and Human Behavior: A Two-Day Introductory Workshop
How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as caring, compassion,
and responsibility? Using Facing History’s unique sequence of study, educators will
explore the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy and, ultimately, the
murder of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. The workshop examines the
complexities of human behavior, judgment, memory, and civic participation.
Participants receive curriculum resources and student-centered teaching strategies that
are aligned to the Common Core, as well as free access to Facing History’s extensive
lending library of DVD and multimedia resources and individualized curriculum support.
$250 registration fee includes lunch and materials; scholarships are available.
