2020 Summer Zoom
An Introduction to Bias
Instructor: David Greenham
Class size 5-24 students
6 seats remaining
Thursday, August 20 • 10-11:00 pm
In these times of troubling examples of the growing divisions within our country, many people are wondering what they can do to help heal. The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine has been working hard to collect resources and recommendations that individuals can use to contribute to changing attitudes. The most important step is learning about our individual biases and how they contribute to the problem. This 45 minute presentation will share some of the details of the work that the HHRC is doing with teachers and students around Maine, and will also serve as an introduction to the fall class being offered through Senior College. This program will be led by HHRC Associate Director David Greenham.
David Greenham is the associate director for the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine (HHRC), and is an adjunct professor of Drama and English at the University of Maine at Augusta. He has been a theater artist and arts administrator for more than 25 years. In his teaching work with the HHRC, David has been working with curriculums from Facing History and Ourselves, Teaching Tolerance, which is the education arm of the Southern Poverty Law Center, Echoes and Reflections, ICivics, and several other sources.
