This workshop aims to provide educators with resources and strategies to effectively integrate The Promise and audiovisual testimony of survivors and witnesses to the Armenian Genocide in their curriculum and to extend student learning of this history. By learning how to integrate the film with testimony-based, classroom-ready resources, educators will be able to provide students the opportunity to develop their critical analysis, historical thinking, and cross-cultural understanding. Additionally, this workshop will provide educators with the tools to confidently develop students' deeper thinking about the impact of historical events from the past, in conjunction with current events across the globe.
