#ParisPedagogiques

This year, International Holocaust Memorial Day commemorates the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It is a time to remember, and honour, the lives lost and the lives affected by this tragic period in human history. The best way to pay homage to their memory is to take stock of how well we have learned the lessons of this period in order to prevent their ever happening again. For this reason, CEJI is launching a new initiative under the hashtag #ParisPedagogiques so that teachers are practically equipped to prevent and confront racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia in all its forms.

What is #ParisPedagogiques?

Following the unrest in Ferguson last summer, Dr. Marcia Chatelain of Georgetown University, asked professors who used Twitter to talk about Ferguson and to use #FergusonSyllabus to recommend texts, collaborate on conversation starters, and inspire dialogue about some aspect of the Ferguson crisis. Slowly high school teachers, early education specialists, guidance counselors, and middle-school instructors wanted ideas too. #ParisPedagogiques is inspired by #FergusonSyllabus and refers to the barbaric recent events in Paris. Paris is also a play with 'pari', a bet or challenge. #ParisPedagogiques equips teachers with practical resources to prevent and confront racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia in all its forms.
