Teachers Institute

Nineteenth Annual Teachers Institute on Holocaust Studies

The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida will present The Eighteenth Annual Teachers Institute at the Center in Maitland from June 16th through June 20th, 2014.

Teachers at every grade level, and in every discipline, are invited to participate in this five-day institute designed to assist them in incorporating Holocaust Education in their class as required by Florida Statutes Chapter 1003.42. Up to 40 hours of inservice credit can be earned.

Lectures, films, printed material and survivor testimony give participants accurate, useful information about the Nazi era and help them identify the things that allowed the Holocaust to happen.

Just as important, the institute encourages thoughtful discussion on how to help children understand the importance of tolerance, good citizenship, and nurturing democratic values.

All seminars and workshops will be led by Holocaust scholars, curriculum specialists, historians, and educators trained at Yad Vashem (Israel’s National Holocaust Memorial Center), or the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The early registration fee (before May 15, 2014) is $75. The regular registration fee is $100. Meals and text materials are included.
