TRANSFORM YOUR CLASSROOM!
Renew your commitment to growing and learning; bring content and methodology into your classroom that will engage and transform your students; enjoy the flexible professional development opportunity afforded by taking an online course.
Take Facing History and Ourselves’ online course, "Holocaust and Human Behavior,” and gain full access to our in-depth professional development services, curricular resources, and ongoing support to educators in the areas of history, social studies, and English language arts.
By using the Holocaust as a case study, we raise profound moral questions about the consequences of our actions and our beliefs, and we help our students make connections between history and the moral choices they make every day. While the Holocaust was a unique event in human history, the questions remain universal.
Learn key strategies, such as how to:
*Create a safe environment in your classroom based on trust and respect for different views and opinions;
*Facilitate discussions around controversial topics;
*Take an interdisciplinary approach to teaching this difficult history.

“When I was first introduced to Facing History and Ourselves I said ‘Facing History? Whose History?’ and it was only later that I understood—our common history, that is what we are all trying to learn.”
“Hearing a survivor’s story in my Facing History class remains to this day one of the most deeply affecting things that has ever happened to me…Suddenly we were interacting with history, suddenly there was a face on it…I owe so much to this curriculum, so much of who I am comes out of this experience and this particular time in my life.”
—Matt Damon, Facing History Alumnus
Testimonials from past online course participants:
"This course has been emotionally challenging and intellectually stimulating. It has pushed me to redirect many of my personal and professional goals. It has begun a change in who I am as a person, which will inevitably transform what I do in my classroom."
—Middle School Teacher, Phoenix, Arizona
"From the beginning to end of this course, it has been valuable to hear, see, and read the voices of the individuals that became a part of history on every level. There are people and actions and choices behind reach historical (and present day) event we witness."
—High school Teacher, New York City, New York
"The course was a fantastic meal that I am still digesting. Most poignant for me is my own realization of the power that an individual can have in shaping and changing events."
