Take an in-depth look at themes of anti-semitism, bullying, civic participation, and moral decision making with one of our weeklong online workshops.

Access content, discussion forums, and strategies when it’s convenient for you, with full support of Facing History staff.
Sign up for a free webinar to explore Facing History themes and hear from guest speakers and experts on topics including civil rights, the Holocaust, and immigration. Past webinar guests include Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sonia Nazario, Holocaust survivors, filmmakers and activists (The List), and veterans of the American civil rights movement. Other webinars provide focused discussion of Facing History pedagogy, teaching strategies, and educational trends. The webinars are recorded for those who cannot attend and many can be found archived on the Facing History website.
