Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio
Educator Summer Institute
This educational conference will focus on the history of the Holocaust and Holocaust pedagogy. The Holocaust was a unique event in human history with a complex and multi-faceted origin. By studying this catastrophe, educators and ultimately their students will grapple with contradictory concepts and expand their knowledge.
This seminar will be taught using interactive and hands-on learning that allow teachers to deepen their understanding of the Holocaust. Upon completion of the course, educators will be able to bring new ideas about historical perspectives of the Holocaust back to their classrooms. In addition, the seminar activities will provide examples of how to teach about the contradictions in historical narratives. Teachers will be given several teaching tools, including links to Yeshiva University’s Holocaust journal, Prism, which contains usable excerpts from history and literature geared to the teenage reader. The seminar will touch on many aspects of the TEKS.
The program is designed for social studies educators in grades 6-12, but educators of all levels and disciplines with an interest in Holocaust education are welcome to attend.
