The Museum promotes the responsible teaching of the Holocaust through a variety of resources and programs to help the nation’s educators increase their knowledge of Holocaust history and implement sound teaching strategies. Education outreach programs provide teachers with quality Holocaust education, incorporating accurate history, appropriate pedagogy, classroom strategies, and teaching resources.
Funded by a grant from the Belfer Foundation, this conference is designed for middle and high school educators and community college faculty.
The Museum offers workshops and conferences in regions throughout the United States. Dates and locations of these programs vary each year.
The Regional Education Corps (REC) formally incorporates several Museum Teacher Fellows into the structured national outreach plan of the Education Division within the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Since 1996 the Museum Teacher Fellowship Program has developed a national corps of skilled educators who serve as the core of the Museum’s efforts to ensure quality Holocaust education in secondary schools. Teacher Fellows organize conferences, lead workshops, write curricula, serve on boards of Holocaust museums and education centers, lead study trips to Holocaust sites, and serve as conduits to the Museum for educators, institutions, professional organizations, and community groups in their regions.
