Through Different Lenses: Cultural And Historical Literacy Through Photography says
In conjunction with HMH’s exhibition of Roman Vishniac’s iconic images of Jewish life in Europe before and during the Holocaust, this workshop will juxtapose images from American Indian, African American and Latino communities to examine photography not only as art, but also as witness. Participants will consider the pedagogical best practices in teaching about the Holocaust and other histories through photography. Participants will engage in a rich examination of cultural context and intended audiences and will be actively involved in using strategies to incorporate new resources into their classrooms. This program will meet the TEKS requirements for Social Studies teachers in grades 3-12. Art educators are encouraged to attend. 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 but not lunch. Registration is limited to 40 teachers and must take place by Feb. 16, 2016.
