Co-hosted by Facing History and Ourselves, this workshop will:

  • Provide resources and tools for educators to teach a more accurate and inclusive history of World War II
  • Include a tour of the ONE Archives at the USC Libraries, the largest LGBTQ Archive in the world

This workshop is particularly relevant for 10th grade World History teachers, but all are welcome. 

Facing History and Ourselves uses the lessons of history to challenge students and teachers to stand up to bigotry and hate.
