Dear Teachers,

My name is Aleta Tew with the Tanner Human Rights Center at the University of Utah.  Our Center has teamed with the American Red Cross to provide a FREE teacher workshop titled The Essence of Humanitarian Law for relicensure points.  The workshop, lunch and a flashdrive with all materials (provided) are free.  I hope you will join us.  Below is information about the workshop, including the link to register - please feel free to share this with other teachers who may be interested.  And, of course, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Very best,

Workshop - Mini EHL - The Essence of Humanitarian Law

This workshop will provide incredible resources and employs participative and interactive modules for teaching students about the challenges people and places face that are brought about by war and civil unrest. All teaching modules are high quality, hands on and push students to engage in critical thinking.  Each module is complete with all the resources you need to implement it.  The course is FREE and so are the materials, which can easily be integrated into existing curriculum.  Modules are designed for secondary students, but can be modified for upper elementary grades.

The learning materials are based on real-life situations and show how IHL aims to protect life and human dignity during armed conflict and to prevent or reduce the suffering and the devastation caused by war. By studying situations involving actual people - their behavior and the dilemmas that they often have to face - participants develop a new perspective and begin to understand the need for rules during war as well as the complexity of their application. By enhancing life skills and by building on concepts such as 'human dignity' and 'humanitarian act,' it helps to foster the development of a humanitarian perspective.

When: Wednesday, June 24, 9am-1pm LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED
Where: Orson Spencer Hall, Room 216, University of Utah, 260 South Central Campus Drive, Salt Lake City
Cost: FREE
