Genocide Education Project to present training workshops

PanARMENIAN.Net - 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, according to Asbarez.

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.

“The Ten Stages of Genocide and the Armenian Case” conference 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” event 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.
