Event description

Description

Teaching “Night” interweaves a literary analysis of Elie Wiesel’s powerful and poignant memoir with an exploration of the relevant historical context surrounding his experience during the Holocaust.

Drawing on videos, historical photographs, and a wide range of primary and secondary sources this workshop will provide tools to help your students develop a nuanced understanding of this complex and disturbing period of history, including Wiesel’s time in Auschwitz.

Facing History’s award-winning scope and sequence method encourages students to revisit the central questions that ask: How is our identity shaped and reshaped by the circumstances we encounter? How do tragedy and trauma influence an individual’s identity and choices? Using this framework to explore the memoir, students will build literacy and historical-analysis skills, while also fostering critical social-emotional competencies like empathy and perspective-taking.

Cost: $125, includes a hard copy of Teaching Night, light breakfast, lunch, and snacks all day. Full Tuition Scholarships are available.

Who should attend: Current or pre-service K-12 ELA/English and Social Studies/History teachers.
