Holocaust 101: Teaching About The Holocaust says
The workshop “Holocaust 101: Teaching about the Holocaust” helps educators learn how to properly teach about the Holocaust. Created in conjunction with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, this workshop will focus on understanding both content and contexts of the Holocaust, and how to incorporate them into the classroom for all students. From the inclusion of diaries and memoirs to the intersection of law and culture, participants will consider content, context and pedagogical best practices in teaching about the Holocaust. Participants will engage in a rich examination of Holocaust history and will also be actively involved in using strategies to incorporate directly into the classroom. All participants will leave with new materials to use and new ideas on teaching about the Holocaust. This program will meet the TEKS requirements for Social Studies (particularly World History) and English/Language Arts teachers in grades three through 12. Art and music educators who wish to incorporate these histories in their studies should also consider attending. This workshop has been approved by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented for six hours in Creativity and Instructional Strategies. The fee for this program is $20 per person, which includes workshop materials, morning snacks and lunch. Registration is limited to 30 teachers and will close July 27, 2015.



Educators can attend this workshop as part of the Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute for Educators (http://www.hmh.org/ed_kaplan.shtml) or as a standalone workshop. The workshop will be held August 3, 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M.
