Teacher’s Institute 2023
Dr. Norman M. Wall
Professional Development Series for Educators
When: June 5-9
The Holocaust Center is proud to present our annual Teacher’s Institute in a hybrid setting. This year, we draw inspiration from the Ken Burns documentary, The US and the Holocaust. Agenda details will be provided on the Whova seminar platform.
Sessions will be 9:30a-3p in person and online through the Whova App. This year features interactive workshop sessions. If you are local (Central Florida), we would like you to attend in person for at least 4 days of the event.
Aligned With Florida State Standards
All of our sessions and resources will reference approved state standards, as well as the State of Florida’s Holocaust Education Mandate. Sessions will also include cross-referencing documents to connect new Holocaust Standards with existing Social Studies, and ELA
Interdisciplinary Teaching Strategies
Broadening our focus, the HMREC will provide a breadth of resources and pedagogical techniques to examine the history and legacy of the Holocaust from different perspectives, disciplines, and grade levels.
You will have a chance to hear from those who experienced the Holocaust, as well as guest speakers who will address bystander behavior, America’s role in the Holocaust, and pedagogical strategies for making relevant connections with modern-day genocides since the Holocaust.
