Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission Awareness - Education - Inspiration

Echoes and Reflections - Teaching the Holocaust, Empowering Students- ESC Region 7

June 19, 2019
Location: Ahavath Achim Synagogue- Tyler, TX
Time: 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

How do we create impactful and thoughtful learning of the Holocaust with students? Through our signature professional development program, participants explore and gain access to a range of classroom content and consider instructional enhancements to support students' study and reflection of the history of the Holocaust and its ongoing meaning in the world today. Educators enhance their own knowledge about the Holocaust, including the history of antisemitism, and build confidence and capacity to teach this complex subject.

Join the Dallas Holocaust Museum and the Echoes and Reflections education team at Ahavath Achim Synagogue in Tyler for an exclusive Region 7 Holocaust educator workshop. This full-day event will provide middle and high school librarians, language arts, social studies, and history teachers the tools to teach a lesson unit on the Holocaust and inspire students to be Upstanders.
