The Museum of Tolerance and The Anti-Defamation League are holding their annual standards-based Holocaust Education Workshop on November 3, 4, 7, and 10, 2010. This course provides an opportunity to get all the best resources in Holocaust education available from every major organization in the field. It explores how to teach the complexities of the Holocaust and other more recent genocides, while adhering to California state standards.
The workshop includes:
- Two visits to the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance
- Visit to the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust at its new site
- Holocaust survivor testimony, the history of anti-Semitism, rescuers and Jewish partisans, as well as modern anti-Semitism and the state of Israel.
The cost is $65 if registered by October 29; $75 thereafter.
(includes all materials, meals, and a copy of the Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation’s Teaching with ‘Defiance’ curriculum).
Participants must attend 16 hours for one LAUSD multicultural salary point. The November 7 session is eight hours; all of the others are four. The November 7 session is presented in combination with ADL’s award-winning Bearing Witness™ program, a Holocaust education seminar for Catholic school teachers.
