The lifeblood of democracy is the ability of every rising generation to be participatory, responsible decision- makers. From the disturbing lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides to struggles for civil rights from Birmingham to South Africa, we trust students to wrestle with complex moments in world history. Our lessons help them understand the range of human behavior and allow them to make essential connections between history, their own moral choices and how historical events impact contemporary times.
