Wednesday, May 5, 3pm-4:30pm
In this online workshop session we will explore resources and strategies incorporating art and poetry of survivors into lessons about the Holocaust. We will discuss and explore teaching strategies that address the following questions:
- How do we remember and share the history of the Holocaust?
- How are we affected by hearing the testimonies of Holocaust survivors? How do their stories influence our understanding of this history?
- What is our role as teachers and students of the Holocaust?
Join VHM and David Rhodes, Program Associate at Facing History and Ourselves, as we engage in personal reflection, explore strategies for facilitating difficult conversations, and receive a toolkit of strategies that promote critical thinking to address the challenges of learning history in today’s 21st century classroom.
This workshop is free for educators. A certificate of attendance will be awarded to participants at the conclusion of the workshop. This workshop is on Zoom and a workshop link will be sent to you via email after registration.
