CHARLESTON — The American Red Cross West Virginia Region is offering an Exploring Humanitarian Law Educator Workshop on Monday, August 5, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Charleston Civic Center.


This day long educator training on the Red Cross curriculum is available free of charge. The American Red Cross Exploring Humanitarian Law curriculum is a flexible toolkit of resources that gives educators easy-to-use materials to help students understand how conflicts—at home and abroad—intersect with the rights and protections of those impacted.


Exploring Humanitarian Law helps students connect current events and real-life questions to the class­room. Through primary source materials, including news accounts, photos and letters, students explore different perspectives on the rules of conflict while grappling with their effect on human life and dignity.


Participants can include youth program leaders, middle and high school teachers, community college instructors, military partners, church and Scout mentors and program developers and others with an interest in an engaging, relevant, free curriculum to help students explore pressing global social and humanitarian issues.


Facilitator materials will be provided for all participants. The training will be engaging and include hands-on activities. The class is free of charge and lunch will be provided.
