Los Angeles, CA
The Museum of Tolerance, in cooperation with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, presents a two-day professional development event that will provide teachers with the guidelines, key resources, and pedagogical approaches to teach about the Holocaust. California educators will be trained and coached by experts from the Holocaust Museum and gain exposure to an array of specially curated classroom resources.
Participants will tour the Museum of Tolerance’s exhibitions, including the new Anne Frank exhibition, and have the opportunity to hear and meet a Holocaust survivor. Participants will also prepare their own unit for immediate classroom use and experience Common Core–aligned model lessons. Everyone receives a packet of educational resources, including the book The World Must Know, DVDs, copies of teaching lessons, and more.
Designed especially for middle and high school teachers.
