Region 11 Registration: THGC 2016 Educator Workshop
The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission offers this free, one-day, live workshop to public and private school educators in social studies and/or language arts for grades 5-12. Highlights from the workshop include an overview of relevant TEKS; an introduction to histories of the Holocaust and genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, and Rwanda, and to current genocides in Darfur and the Middle East (ISIS); explorations of contemporary topical issues in historiography, literary representation, and pedagogical approaches; and demonstrations of lessons that frequently highlight Texas connections. Educators in attendance will be given a folder containing lesson materials and readings, and will also be the first to gain access to the THGC’s free, password-protected digital library of film and textual materials, all of which have been carefully selected by THGC education staff.
This registration form is only for educators who will attend the Region 11 workshop in Ft. Worth. There will be a workshop scheduled for each region, and the registration for those will be available on our website soon.
