Teacher Workshop

The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies invites all educators to participate in the second of two workshops designed specifically to engage teachers with themes related to the Commonwealth’s new Genocide Education Act (2022). The workshop will explore different approaches to teaching genocide, focusing on questions that guide the research in this field. We will discuss several models of genocide and examine the insights a comparative approach may provide.

In addition, Salem State faculty will present the history of the Armenian Genocide and the Genocide of the Tutsi in Rwanda and lead a discussion about similarities and differences between the two cases. During the workshop, separate sessions will help teachers integrate genocide lessons inside the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, explore essential primary sources, and identify best practices for teaching these complex and sensitive issues in the classroom.

Participants are eligible for PDPs (a minimum of ten-hour participation is required).

Please email The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies with any questions.

Parking is available in Lot C, near the old Salem Diner.
