The Breman Jewish Heritage Museum is hosting a five-day Summer Institute on Teaching the Holocaust beginning June 15. The institute is for educators and includes in-depth seminars led by Holocaust instructors from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Anti-Defamation League (ADL), The Jewish Partisans Educational Foundation, and Yad Vashem International School of Holocaust Studies, Jerusalem. It will also feature daily meetings and discussions with Holocaust Survivors. The museum is committed to preparing educators to teach the Holocaust across grade levels, subject areas and curricula, while addressing Georgia Performance and Common Core Standards.
Tuition for the course is $295 and includes all textbooks (including the $95 Echoes and Reflections), all presentation materials, lunches, snacks, and free parking. To earn 4 PLU credits, teachers must attend all five days of the Summer Institute. To earn an additional 1 PLU credit, teachers must submit a lesson plan incorporating the subject matter studied during the week. Some limited scholarships are available.
The Institute will take place June 15-19 from 8:30 – 4:00 at The Breman Jewish Heritage Museum. For more information on registration and scholarship opportunities, contact Terri Zuckerman at email@example.com or (678) 222-3707.
