HOLOCAUST EDUCATION TRAINING
FOR MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS OF HISTORY/SOCIAL STUDIES, ENGLISH/LANGUAGE ARTS AND LIBRARIANS
How do we prepare students to read and understand Eli Wiesel’s Night within the larger historical framework of the Holocaust? What are some of the moral and ethical questions that the memoir helps students examine?
New Mexico Human Rights Projects is proud to host an Echoes and Reflections professional development-training program for middle and high school teachers who want to incorporate Holocaust education into their curriculum and who are specifically using the book Night.
The focus of this professional development program will be on the materials and instructional strategies available in Echoes and Reflections to effectively teach Night as well as additional background on the memoir that teachers can integrate into their instruction. Echoes and Reflections is a joint Holocaust education program of the Anti-Defamation League, USC Shoah Foundation and Yad Vashem.
This training will prepare teachers to teach the complex history of the Holocaust in a way that stimulates engagement, critical thinking and personal understanding among students. Teachers will learn to help students gain relevant insight into how to examine human dilemmas and social challenges, and determine their roles and responsibilities in the world around them.
