Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute for Educators
July 10, 2019 to July 12, 2019
Location: Holocaust Museum Houston, The Boniuk Center for the Future of Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education
Time: All Day
The 2019 Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute will be held July 10-12 in the classrooms of the Boniuk Center for the Future of Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Studies. Presentations by scholars, workshops, and activities will introduce participants to the history of the Holocaust and genocide, as well as the new Museum.
The institute, held each summer, provides substantive content and the opportunity to network with internationally known scholars and educators. Working in the Museum’s exhibit spaces and classrooms, teachers grow in their understanding and refine their skills to teach about the history and lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides. Educators are introduced and immersed in a range of engaging media and resources. Each year’s schedule includes one or two evening lectures.
The program is directed toward educators on a secondary or higher level, but university students and educators of all levels who have a specific interest in, and background knowledge of genocide and the Holocaust are invited to apply. Seating is limited and is on a competitive basis. The cost to attend the program is $175, which includes lunch and materials for the three days. See this year's application form for information about early registration discounts.
