WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN:

It Starts with Words: Teaching the Holocaust to Combat Hate

The Holocaust arose out of antisemitic hatred fueled in part by the power of words. Participants examine the escalation of words to violence, which in turn, became genocide in order to consider where such a progression might have been interrupted. Educators gain tools to apply these lessons to modern day issues faced by students to ensure human dignity for all.

Foundations: Pedagogy of Teaching the Holocaust and Antisemitism

What is the Holocaust? How do we define it? What are the important elements that must be included in our lessons? This session will present pedagogical suggestions on how to approach the teaching of the Holocaust in the classroom, while also discussing the roots of antisemitism. We will explore the rich array of classroom content provided free to teachers on the Echoes & Reflections website, including visual testimonies, photographs, our new timeline, primary source documents, literature and art. Educators will build confidence to teach this complex subject.

Analyzing Propaganda and Teaching Media Literacy: The Holocaust as a Case Study

Participants explore the events of the Holocaust through the lens of media, by examining propaganda deployed by the Nazis to discriminate against Jews and other minorities. Educators gain tools to facilitate classroom discussions and support students to analyze media in today’s world.

Foundations of Teaching the Holocaust: Complicity and Responsibility

This is designed to enhance teachers’ knowledge, capacity, and confidence to teach about the Holocaust through the lens of "Complicity & Responsibility. Educators will explore our unit on this topic including lessons, visual history testimonies and other resources that examine aspects of complicty and responsibility during the Holocaust and its continued relevance today.

Advancing Civic Participation through Holocaust Education

Studying the Holocaust imparts essential lessons of civic values, including justice, tolerance, and the importance of democratic liberties. This program examines how lessons of history can instill the importance of civic action in young people from all backgrounds. By using Echoes pedagogical approach and examining the rise of the Nazi party, participants bridge memory into action and inspire students to participate in political processes in their community.
