The mission of the Genocide Education Project
(GEP) is to help prevent genocide by assisting educators, students and educational organizations with teaching and learning about genocide and other major human rights violations, with specific focus on the Armenian genocide. A Resource Packet for Teaching about the Armenian Genocide is available to teachers. It includes a resource book developed by Facing History and Ourselves, lesson plans developed by GEP, a video produced by ABC Network News and education posters available through GEP. GEP sponsors teacher training workshops addressing topics such as identity, comparative genocide studies, the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide and other topics related to human rights.
