Teaching the Unthinkable: Counter-Narratives, Pedagogy, and Genocide

Teaching the Unthinkable: Counter-Narratives, Pedagogy, and Genocide

Ratings: (0)|Views: 5 |Likes:
This study focuses on the pedagogy of teaching about the Armenian
Genocide and the Holocaust by using alternate texts to create a
counter-narrative. By using different genres, teachers can encourage
students to question the dominant historical narratives about the
Armenian Genocide and Holocaust. Alternate texts include poetry,
graphic novels, plays, and films. Each of these genres invites the
reader or viewer to actively engage in history by examining the
viewpoint of the victims of genocide. School curriculums must
change so that future generations will have a more complete
understanding of genocide.
