Teaching Genocide with Film Educator Workshop

March 14, 2019 3:00pm - 4:30pm

followed by a special preview and discussion of The Trial of Ratko Mladic 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Join us for a workshop exploring the challenges and opportunities of teaching genocide with film. Designed for both high school and college educators, this workshop will examine why and how to use both feature and documentary films to spur deep learning about one of the difficult subjects in any curriculum. Participants will reflect on what it means to teach "difficult histories", consider how film can be effectively deployed in different classrooms settings, and explore examples of specific strategies and films.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants are invited to a special preview of the new documentary The Trial of Ratko Mladic.
