FREEDOMS FOUNDATION AT VALLEY FORGE

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.  This program will also introduce educators to classroom material to address contemporary manifestations of antisemitism and its relationship to traditional forms of antisemitism present before and during the Holocaust. There is no cost for this program.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided, as will sub pay. For more information and to register, please contact info@echoesandreflections.org. 

Echoes & Reflections delivers value to both experienced Holocaust educators who are supplementing their curricula and for teachers new to Holocaust education.
