“Paralleled Histories: The Holocaust, Jim Crow and Japanese-American Internment”
February 21, 2014 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Location Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multi-Purpose Learning Center
How do the histories of the Holocaust, the Jim Crow era and Japanese-American Internment intersect? During this one-day workshop, educators can learn how fear, enmity, prejudice and apathy worked together to harm civil societies in Nazi Germany and the United States. Topics will include how legal frameworks were implemented to remove identified “others” from society and restrict their movements to gain power over – and in the case of the Holocaust – murder the identified people. Using primary source materials and media literacy, participants will leave this program prepared to connect these paralleled histories in their classrooms. This program will meet the TEKS requirements for Social Studies and English/Language Arts teachers in grades three through 12. Art and music educators who wish to incorporate these histories 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 Feb. 14, 2014.
