Facing History’s pedagogy is about learning from both the good and the bad of the past, about constructing a safe classroom environment, and about teaching children how to be ‘upstanders’ or those who stand up against prejudice or persecution. We’re bringing into the teaching of history a conversation about what it means to be human. How did an event like the Holocaust come to be? How does a society reach that point? How could it have been prevented?
–Dr. James Wolfinger, DePaul Faculty Leader
