The Stefi Altman Seminar for Educators: “Holocaust Studies 101”
March 1, 2013 8:30 AM - 4:15 PM
Location Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multipurpose Learning Center
Need to brush up on your understanding of Holocaust history?  Or, is this the first time you are implementing a Holocaust-based unit of study in your classroom?  Join Holocaust Museum Houston’s education department on March 1 for this one-day “Holocaust Studies 101” workshop.  This program, conducted under the auspices of The Stefi Altman Seminar for Educators, will include a docent-led tour of the Museum, following which participants will participate in several history-based lesson activities educators can use in their own classrooms.  The afternoon will include practice implementing pedagogical guidelines specific to the Holocaust and connect to the morning’s resource-based activities. The program will conclude with a Holocaust survivor speaking, subject to availability. This program is aligned to the TEKS for Social Studies (especially World History and U.S. history) and would connect well with those related to English Language Arts teachers as well.  It features the latest historiography regarding the Holocaust as discussed at several international conferences in 2012. This program has been approved for 5.5 hours credit in creativity and instructional strategies by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented. Seating for this program is limited to 30 teachers (first-come, first-served), and registration must be completed by Friday, Feb. 22.  The cost for the one-day session – including materials – is $5. Lunch is not included. To register for the workshop, please visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx. For more information, e-mail
