Welcome to the online educator workshop “Books of Conscience: Elimination (Cambodia).” Designed and developed by the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, a nonprofit educational organization, this lesson is open to registered participants. The Center’s mission is “to promote respect for human dignity and foster individual responsibility for justice and peace through education.”
Learning occurs when interest and the need-to-know intertwine. Books inspire us to understand, empathize, challenge bias, combat injustice and promote social justice. The selected books on the Cambodian genocide encourage reflection, development and application of those principles. This course combines information from the Spiral of Injustice with focus on elimination and the ACTs (Ask, Choose, Teach) that promote becoming an upstander. Lesson resources help teachers recognize how one person can make a difference and take action to combat genocide.
