TEI 2017 Highlights

July 25th, 2017–

This year marks the 15th year the Virginia Holocaust Museum hosting the Alexander Lebenstein Teacher Education Institute. Back in 2002, as part of the Museum's primary focus on education, the VHM's volunteers developed this program originally as a two-weekend workshop. It has now expanded with the Museum.

The Teacher Education Institute is a ten-day course, assisting educators with their understanding of the Holocaust and genocide. Sessions focus on historical background and pedagogy which link to the Virginia Standards of Learning requirements. TEI is offered in partnership with Longwood University and is funded by a generous gift from Weinstein Properties.
