Roma and Sam Kaltman Institute on Teaching the Holocaust 2022

June 20-24, 2022

Educators are invited to join the Holocaust & Humanity Center for a five-day institute that will give them effective and engaging techniques for teaching the Holocaust in their classrooms.

Studies show that students who are exposed to high-quality Holocaust education are more empathetic, caring and demonstrate higher critical thinking skills. But, what does effective Holocaust education look like at the secondary level? Spend a week learning from renowned Holocaust scholars, collaborating with fellow educators, and creating your own unit rationale. Whether you have a week to teach the Holocaust, or an entire semester, you will leave with a pacing framework that meets your needs and curricular strategies that meld historical content with the vital literacy skills students need to succeed. 

  • The institute is open to anyone who is teaching or plans to teach about the Holocaust and takes an interdisciplinary approach to the Holocaust.
  • Registered participants will receive a copy of Doris Bergen’s War & Genocide: A Concise History of the Holocaust, resources, and curricular activities that are easily implemented into existing curriculum. 
  • 40 Contact hours/3 CEUS are available. Cost for the training is $100.
