The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center’s professional development opportunities are designed to support teachers.
Our professional development opportunities support teachers in delivering high-quality instruction. Our resources help teachers build their students’ content knowledge, empathy, and critical thinking skills. Educators will gain tangible resources that can easily be integrated into existing curriculum.
Our expert staff can facilitate professional development training for your staff at our award-winning center within historic Union Terminal. Tailored to fit each school district’s unique initiatives, we also conduct on-site professional development at schools throughout the region. Below is a sampling of the professional development opportunities we can provide to school districts.
