The need to remember often compete with the equally strong pressure to forget. Even with the best of intentions – such as to promote reconciliation after deeply divided events by “turning the page” – erasing the past can prevent new generations from learning critical lessons and destroy opportunities to build a peaceful future. “Creating a Classroom Community of Conscience” is designed to both guide and facilitate a cadre of Idaho educators in their exploration of the Holocaust, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Spiral of Injustice. The course utilizes both onsite and online instruction to engage the cadre in discussion, reflection, and lesson development. Throughout the course, the educators will be identifying and integrating opportunities for student voice and a call to action.

The course will:
– interpret history through literature, art, and interview;
– engage in programs that stimulate dialogue on pressing social issues;
– share strategies for student involvement and positive action on the issues raised ; and
– promote justice and universal cultures of human rights.

Eligible for three continuing education credits from Boise State University, the course requirements include:

attend the scheduled three-hour monthly Saturday seminars in Boise: September 30, October 21, November 18, December 9, January 13, February 10, March 10, April 14 and May 19;
complete the monthly “reflect and respond” online assignments;
prepare and present three lesson plans designed for topic integration and student engagement;
select and complete independent reading of three “Books of Conscience” from a predetermined course list and prepare for an in-seminar “pair and share”; and
complete three modules in the Center’s e-Classroom for both online and onsite discussion.
Limited to 25 participants, register online by September 20, 2017 at ——; there is a $100 course registration fee to cover materials.

Optional – to register for the three continuing education credits from Boise State University, an online registration address will be emailed to participants after completing the Wassmuth Center course registration.
