The ANCA-WR Education Committee has developed and compiled a wide range of resources to help teachers with educating complex moments in history or addressing contemporary events, by engaging students and cultivating them into compassionate citizens.

Armenian Heritage

Nestled in the Caucasus Region, Armenia is a landlocked country with an ancient history and a rich culture. The culture of Armenia encompasses many elements that are based on the geography, literature, architecture, dance, and music of the people.

Armenian Genocide

The Armenian Genocide (1915-1923) was the Ottoman government’s systematic extermination of its peaceful Christian Armenian subjects from their historic homeland within the territory constituting the present-day Republic of Turkey. Educators and Students can study about this pivotal turning point in history, in order to prevent future genocides from occurring. 


The Republic of Artsakh (also known as Nagorno Karabakh) is a region adjacent to the Republic of Armenia that has contained an Armenian indigenous population for over 2,000 years. Despite international pressure for a cessation of hostilities, Azerbaijani forces have also launched direct attacks on the internationally recognized borders of the Republic of Armenia, targeting military and civilian infrastructure.
