The American Red Cross, along with its partners World Savvy and ORIAS at the University of California, Berkeley, will offer an educator workshop for teaching the Exploring Humanitarian Law (EHL) curriculum on Saturday, November 7. This workshop provides resources to help students understand the rules governing war and their impact on human life and dignity.
The EHL education tool kit developed by the ICRC is used in secondary schools worldwide. Classroom materials include five extensive modules that focus on the history of international humanitarian law developed since World War I. The modules are also meant to empower a response to contemporary human suffering as a result of armed conflict. Each module contains primary source materials such as news accounts, photos, videos, maps and letters along with activities such as dramatic scenarios, case studies, and hands-on activities.
Workshop participants will receive professional training in using selected modules and a DVD copy of the entire tool kit. The program is designed for 8 – 12th grade teachers, private or public school, and registration is free.
When: Saturday, November 7, 2019 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Where: University of California, Berkeley
To register, call (415) 427-8064 or visit: http://orias.berkeley.edu/.
