Roger W. Smith Genocide and Human Rights
Summer Institute for Teachers 2010
Focus: Southeast Asia and Africa
Northern Illinois University-DeKalb; June 14 - 17, 2010
The 21st century has not brought us any closer to ending genocide. Sadly it remains an ever-present reality in our world. But with the recent call to action by the Genocide Task Force, pleading for Americans to create "a permanent constituency" against impunity, ignorance, and apathy when it comes to genocide,
NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT.
In its fifth year, the Roger W. Smith Genocide and Human Rights Summer Institute for Educators offers you the chance to become a catalyst in the creation of this constituency. By studying with some of the leading scholars and teachers in the field of genocide, human rights, and violence, you will be better prepared to offer instruction to your students and shape the next generation's efforts to stop the violence. Teaching ideas will be explored, lesson plans provided, and all materials for teaching.
All K-16 educators are welcome to attend. Resource and curriculum materials will focus on the middle/high school/community college levels. Our keynote speaker for 2010 is Dr. Scott Strauss of University of Wisconsin.
Funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education, Title VI, National Resource Center Grant and co-sponsored by NIU's Genocide and Human Rights Institute and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Northern Illinois University.
