Facing History and Ourselves

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Facing History and Ourselves

Facing History and Ourselves provides professional development and classroom resources to middle and high school educators, helping them to teach about the consequences of racism, antisemitism, and violence through the lens of historical case studies. They want to enhance their impact by building their capacity to launch a Toronto-based network of partner schools. These local school networks are part of Facing History’s organization-wide Partner Schools Network, which grew out of the experience that the Facing History approach is most effective when it is infused into programming throughout an entire school, rather than a classroom-to-classroom basis.
