Facing History website

Just pointing you toward a wealth of resources provided by Facing History and Ourselves: helping classrooms and communities worldwide link the past to moral choices today.

This site is filled with lesson plans, video clips and podcasts, plus more resources on a variety of topics including the Holocaust and Little Rock Nine. Currently, the home page features a video entitled "Do Something, Do Nothing". Choose to do something: review and share these resources.
