Effectively incorporating survivor testimony into Holocaust education personalizes the history being taught and allows students to make an emotional connection to those who experienced it first hand. This workshop will help educators effectively integrate survivor testimony into their curricula, allowing students to grasp the impact of historical event on individual people and families.
Featuring the Echoes and Reflections curriculum, MCHE’s Witnesses to the Holocaust Archive and the classroom version of the new documentary Big Sonia about local survivor Sonia Warshawski, this workshop will explore different kinds of testimony and their use in the classroom.
Your $20 registration includes a complimentary copy of the Echoes and Reflections teacher guide, handouts, resource materials, and a light lunch. Participation is limited to the first 50 educators and is facilitated by MCHE’s director of education, Jessica Rockhold. This workshop is open to 7-12th grade educators only.
Facilitated by MCHE’s director of education, Jessica Rockhold.
Funding for MCHE’s 2017-2018 school programs and teacher education opportunities is provided, in part, by an allocation from the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City.
