From Bystander to Upstander
The news from around the world can be overwhelming, and people often wonder how they can help with the enormous job of bringing about a more humane, just, compassionate world and a more democratic society.
This workshop, for middle and high school teachers of U.S. and World History, will present stories of individuals and groups who “chose to participate” in a variety of ways during the Civil Rights movement, specifically the desegregation of Central High School in 1957 and the Freedom Rides in 1961. Their stories can help us reflect on the values and actions that will strengthen our communities rather than make them more fragile.
The facilitator for this workshop, Dr. Mary Johnson, is Facing History and Ourselves’ senior historian.
Using the “Facing History Approach”
Dr. Johnson’s workshop will educate middle and high school teachers with the understanding they need to discuss civic responsibility and engagement. Using various historical case studies and compelling content, teachers will develop strategies to discuss difficult decisions regarding human rights.
Gain a new perspective while adding more tools to your teaching toolbox.
