COSTA MESA — The Genocide Education Project (GenEd) will present two teacher training workshops and an exhibit booth at the 2016 California Council for the Social Studies Conference (CCSS), March 4-6, in Costa Mesa, CA. Social Studies educators from across California will converge at the Hilton Orange County to hear from education experts and receive training and teaching materials for K-12 social studies classes.
CCSS is the largest state professional social studies education organization for teachers, administrators, and curriculum specialists in California. Its annual conference attracts up to 1000 attendees. If a teacher you know is attending CCSS this year, please encourage them to meet with GenEd at its exhibit booth (#402) and to attend our two conference breakout sessions we will be offering:
“The Ten Stages of Genocide and the Armenian Case” will explore guidelines for teaching about genocide using the United Nations definition of genocide and the “Ten Stages of Genocide” by Dr. Gregory Stanton
“The Armenian Genocide: A Centennial Perspective” will examine how this major crime against humanity was carried out and why it is considered by historians as the prototype genocide of the modern era.
The Genocide Education Project is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that assists educators in teaching about human rights and genocide, particularly the Armenian Genocide, as the prototype for genocide in the modern era.
