This annual conference is intended for secondary school, community college, and university educators with less than five years of experience teaching about the Holocaust. Educators with more experience are also invited to attend.
There are two tracks, one for English/language arts teachers (July 19–21) and one for social studies/history educators (July 23–25).
Participants will work closely with Museum staff, historians, and expert educators; have exclusive access to Museum exhibitions when the Museum is closed to the public; obtain lesson plans that focus on teaching diverse audiences and the relevance of the Holocaust today; and network with educators from around the country.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and it ends on June 15. Participants are responsible for their transportation to and accommodations in Washington, DC. A limited number of scholarships are available to offset travel costs. There is no fee to attend the conference.
