Teaching the Holocaust, Empowering Students
Teacher Training Workshop
APRIL 4th, 2019 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM
Queens University Sports Complex and Conference Center, 2229 Tyvola Rd., Charlotte, NC 28210
A day long exploration of three different topics related to the Holocaust.
The day will begin with an in-depth look at Antisemitism - past and present. This will include looking at the rise of hate crimes against Jews and what we can do in our classrooms to help.
The day's second topic focuses on the Rescuers and how non-Jewsish people resisted the Nazis. We will explore how to use this lesson to encourage upstander behavior in our students.
The day will conclude with a look at how we can teach the Holocaust using art. Art engaginges students in a different way and often leads to deeper insights into this period of history.
