– with Christina E. Chavarria, Program Coordinator, National Outreach for Teacher Initiatives at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
The Capital District Council for the Social Studies and Holocaust Survivors & Friends Education Center invite teachers to this unique opportunity to hear a presentation, "Constructing Chronology: Resources for a Timeline of the Holocaust", by Christina E. Chavarria, Program Coordinator of National Outreach for Teacher Initiatives at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.
Over 30 Million people from around the world have visited the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The goal of the educational outreach programs of the Holocaust Memorial Museum is to educate the world about the history of the Holocaust, to fight contemporary antisemitism, and to promote the prevention of genocide.
This seminar will provide teachers rationales, strategies, and approaches for presenting this complex topic to students in sessions designed for middle-and high-school Social Studies and Humanities teachers. An interactive discussion will provide educators with an opportunity to translate their learning into practice. This specialized program will assist teachers to bring events and individual stories to their students. Teachers will receive resources and materials from the United States Holocaust Museum Education programs to enhance their lessons on the Holocaust.
Shelly Shapiro, Director, Holocaust Survivors & Friends Education Center, will work with teachers on lesson development and sharing.
