Genocide Studies Education level 9 - 12 May 13, 2020

I have found it vital for students studying 20th and 21st century genocides to first have a base, launching point and solid understanding of the term genocide; from the term's origins, it's founder, analyzing it from a legal perspective, through its various stages, via empathy as well as the differing conceptions of it. This collection of resources has proved helpful to engage students, create a curiosity in them, as well as setting them up to explore specific examples of genocide from multiple perspectives, all the while trying to address how and why they happened.

I use this collection of resources to both introduce and address, what is genocide, and as a set up for teaching genocides that are a part of the B.C. Ministry of Education's Genocide 12 course.
