“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.

For more information, please contact J.E. Wolfson at j.e.wolfson@thgc.texas.gov or Robin Lane at robin.lane@thgc.texas.gov.
