Holocaust and Human Behavior for Educators in Jewish Settings

Grounded in the study of Jewish ethics and values, this seminar examines the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy in Germany and ultimately to the persecution of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. Participants will investigate the connection between Jewish history and identity, the moral questions inherent in everyday life, and how we as individuals and members of groups can make a difference in the world today.

In this seminar you will:

  • Discover literacy-based teaching strategies, classroom activities, and multimedia resources that support the reading of challenging texts, encourage critical analysis of primary and secondary sources, and promote ethical reflection
  • Learn multidisciplinary pedagogical approaches for teaching a course on the Holocaust that is grounded in the study of Jewish ethics and values

After this seminar you will:

  • Become part of the Facing History Educator Network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and online tools
  • Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost
  • Receive coaching and support as you implement this unit in your classroom

This seminar is eligible for graduate credit. Email [email protected] for details.
