“The Stefi Altman Seminar for Educators: Using Literature Sources in Holocaust and Genocide Education”
November 19, 2013 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Location Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multi-Purpose Learning Center
Do you use the same book or the same author each time you teach about the Holocaust? Educators can learn how to expand the literary offerings in education and invite rigorous learning via literature with students in this one-day workshop. The program will focus on school-age appropriate literature for grades three through 12, including how to incorporate the use of literature in all classrooms for all development levels. From the inclusion of diaries and memoirs to the use of poetry and historical fiction, participants will consider the pedagogical best practices in teaching about the Holocaust. Participants will engage in a rich examination of picture books and graphic novels and be actively involved in strategies to incorporate in teaching about the Holocaust based on the book, “The Book Thief.” All participants will leave with classroom-use materials and new ideas on teaching about the Holocaust and other genocides. This program will meet the TEKS requirements for both English/language arts and social studies teachers in grades three through 12. Art and music educators who wish to incorporate Holocaust-based literature in their studies may also wish to consider attending. This workshop has been approved by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented for five hours in creativity and instructional strategies. The fee for this program is $20 per person, which includes workshop materials but not lunch. Registration is limited to 40 people, and must be received by Nov. 8, 2013.
