Workshop empowers educators to confidently teach on genocide

The “Empowering Educators to Teach on Genocide” virtual professional development workshop held January 15–16, sponsored by the area studies centers at UW–Madison, the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education and Resource Center (HERC), and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Attendees included teachers from Kettle Moraine, La Crosse, Madison, and Milwaukee, and other areas of Wisconsin.

The workshop itself was split into two sessions: the first on Saturday featured talks on genocide cases in regions of the world that UW–Madison area studies centers represent; the second on Sunday featured an overview of Act 30 and techniques for teaching genocide and related topics in the classroom.
