Gather with colleagues from around the state to attend the Wassmuth Center’s annual Human Rights Teacher Workshop each April. Designed to immerse participants in topics and themes relevant to classroom teaching and learning, the one-day workshop provides an opportunity to explore the Center’s programming and resources while focusing on the stories that enrich understanding.
“We must cultivate student interest in applying the human rights perspective gained from these stories to their personal lives, schools, and communities. We must encourage students to utilize the skills they already possess for effective action (whether they recognize these skills in themselves). And, we must help them find resources for doing so. Fortunately, we don’t have to look further than the amazing programming of the Wassmuth Center.” Ben Harris, 2019 Idaho Human Rights Educator-of-the-Year, Bishop Kelly High School.
