Facing History and Ourselves Inc.
Facing History and Ourselves uses lessons of history to challenge teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate. Facing History uses a unique approach that integrates civics, equity, and social-emotional learning (SEL) into core academic content. When Facing History pedagogy and curriculum are integrated into the classroom, educators provide opportunities for students to develop SEL and civic skills and dispositions, including tolerance and empathy, the ability to communicate across difference, a capacity for ethical reflection, a commitment to the common good, and a belief that each person's choices and actions matter, all of which prepare students to be informed, thoughtful, and productive individuals.
