TARGET AUDIENCE: JUNIOR HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL HUMANTIES TEACHERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
Are you interested in incorporating the Holocaust into your teaching? Are you unsure of where to start? Are you teaching online, in the classroom, or a bit of both? This session is for you. We will cover a wide variety of online resources for bringing the Holocaust into middle years and high school classrooms in a respectful and holistic manner that is accessible and safe for students. Information will include novel studies, survivor stories, films, historical documents and so much more. Due to our current COVID-19 teaching, an emphasis will be placed on resources found online and programming for students in changing venues.
