An Interactive Online Classroom for Students


"NICOLE'S JOURNEY"

 www.LearnGenocide.com

This interactive online classroom provides students a background to the history of the Armenian Genocide and the effects of the denial of the Genocide on subsequent generations. Nicole’s real life journey to the village of her grandmother, now in Eastern Turkey, illustrates the continued pain that genocide brings and the fortitude of those searching for truth.

The tutorial is divided into five sections. Each section includes an assignment composed of short answer questions and a writing-based assignment. Teachers will be able to create classrooms within this interactive plan where they will list their students (not personal information about students will be collected) obtaining for each a user name and password to access the lesson.  As students progress through the plan, the assignments they complete will automatically be saved under their user name for teachers to view at a later date.  :: More ::

Voices of Survivors

The Armenian Genocide

Focusing on the experiences of individual survivors helps to personalize and contextualize the massive numbers of people who perished in the Armenian Genocide as well as other genocides. Numbers like 11 million, 1.5 million, and 800,000 become abstract figures that students accept without much thought. By learning about individual experiences during genocide, students gain a stronger sense of connection to the event—the numbers are humanized.

Utilizing the "Twenty Voices" Map by Araz Artinian and accompanied by a lesson plan created by The Genocide Education Project, this exercise allows students to get a glimpse of the historic homeland of the Armenians that was completely erased in only a few years, from 1915-1923. Students learn what survivors had, what was lost, and can begin to imagine the impact of this trauma on the rest of their lives.

FROM FACING HISTORY AND OURSELVES:

Crimes Against Humanity and Civilization: The Genocide of the Armenians

Download | Order
 
This resource book is one of four items in our resource kit on the Armenian Genocide.


Facing History's new resource book, Crimes Against Humanity and Civilization: The Genocide of the Armenians, combines the latest scholarship on the Armenian Genocide with an interdisciplinary approach to history, enabling students and

teachers to make the essential connections between history and their own lives. By concentrating on the choices that individuals, groups, and nations made before, during, and after the genocide, readers have the opportunity to consider the dilemmas faced by the international community in the face of massive human rights violations.

While focusing on the Armenian Genocide during World War I, the book considers the many legacies of the Armenian Genocide including Turkish denial and the struggle for the recognition of genocide as a "crime against humanity." The book can be integrated into courses dealing with multiple genocides, human rights, as well as history courses covering the late 19th century and World War I as well as U.S. international relations.

Confronting Genocide: Never Again?

Download/Order
 
Overview of the Unit - The genocides of the twentieth century elicited feelings of horror and revulsion throughout the world. Yet both the international community and the United States have struggled to respond to this recurring problem.

Confronting Genocide: Never Again? traces the evolution of the international community's response to genocide and examines how the United States has responded to five cases of 

genocide. The evaluation of multiple perspectives, informed debate, and problem solving strategies that comprise this unit enable students to develop their own policy suggestions concerning America’s response to future genocide.  :: More ::
