“Do Not Say They Cannot Hear Us”: THGC Interdisciplinary Workshop on Teaching the Holocaust and Genocides

The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission (THGC) offers this free, one-day, live workshop to public and private school educators in social studies and/or language arts for grades 5-12. The workshop will introduce relevant TEKS; provide an overview of relevant vocabularies and histories; explore contemporary issues in historiography, literary/artistic representation, and pedagogical approaches; and showcase resources with Texas connections. Educators in attendance will be first to gain access to the THGC’s free, password-protected digital library of film and textual materials.

Most workshops will begin at 9:00am and end at 4:00pm.

Content materials and lunch will be provided for those who register at least one week before each workshop.  Please register as soon as possible.
